'Transfer of the decade': Some Chelsea fans excited by transfer links to 22-year-old praised by Fabregas

Chelsea are receiving transfer links to Monaco youngster Aurelien Tchouameni – and some Blues fans on Twitter are really excited about the speculation.

90min reports that the Blues are preparing a fresh move for the 21-year-old in the January transfer window after considering him in the summer.

It is understood that French side Monaco would demand around £50million for the talented midfielder.

In addition, Chelsea are open to a deal where they sign the Frenchman in January and allow him to spend the rest of the 2021/22 season on loan with his current club Monaco.

Cesc Fabregas previously praised Tchouameni by saying he’s got a “very, very good” future ahead of him.

He’s a young defensive midfielder with great athleticism strength and pace, so on paper he looks like he may fit Premier League football.

Chelsea fans want Tchouameni

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media believe that Tchouameni is a great transfer target for them to chase.

The £50million-rated ace already has a few seasons of first-team experience under his belt, which is why he looks mature beyond his age.

Chelsea’s current midfield options are extremely strong when everyone’s fit, however, they’ve had real problems in the centre of the park in recent times.

Tchouameni is definitely someone that would be a look towards the future if they added him to their midfield ranls.
