'Unbelievable': Chelsea fans rave about reported target's 'elite' international display

A big slice of Chelsea supporters on social media have been salivating over Aurelien Tchouameni’s Nations League final performance.

Tchouameni started for France in the showpiece event against Spain last night.

The 21-year-old played the full match as Le Blues came from behind to win 2-1.

Sunday’s outing was only his fifth for the senior national team.

That number is only going to increase as Tchouameni’s talents flourish even further.

On Chelsea’s radar

And the more he grows, the more attention he’ll receive from Europe’s big hitters.

Including Chelsea, who are reportedly interested in the French starlet.

Signing the wonder kid raised in Rouen would certainly adhere to the wishes of Blues fans, who were in awe of his display on Sunday.

Here’s how they reacted on Twitter:

Tchouameni to Chelsea?

Followers of Chelsea have already made their feelings very clear about Tchouameni.

They want him at Stamford Bridge, potentially as successor to N’Golo Kante.

Ironically, Kante’s absence from French duty arguably allowed the Monaco man to feature in the Nations League fixture.

Could we already be witnessing the passing of the torch?

Very possibly, although Kante still has plenty of fire left in his belly, even if recent evidence suggests otherwise.

Repeated trips to the treatment table have caused some to question the Parisian’s long-term future.

Or rather, to query when a replacement will be installed.

As soon as January potentially, if Chelsea decide to swoop for Tchouameni.
