French midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni was in action on Wednesday night for Monaco – and some Chelsea fans on Twitter were left amazed by the quality of his performance. 

Tchouameni, 21, is a highly rated talent that has been linked with the Blues this summer.

According to 90min last week, Chelsea are weighing up a potential offer for the Monaco youngster before this summer transfer window shuts. 

The report says that he cost the Ligue 1 club just over £15million and they would want to double their money in any potential sale.


Monaco were in action last night in a Champions League play-off qualifier against Shakhtar Donetsk, which they ended up losing over the two legs.

The defensive midfielder played 117 minutes during a match which went to extra time, but Ukrainian side Shakhtar eventually won the tie 3-2.

Chelsea fans loved Tchouameni performance

A selection of Chelsea supporters on social media believe Monaco’s rising star could be a perfect addition at Stamford Bridge. 

He’s an all-action midfielder that is already a key player in the Monaco XI with his defensive qualities and only seems to be getting better. Also, he’s got real composure on the ball, too.

Chelsea do have some of the best central midfielders around right now. N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic are superb options for the manager to have in the centre of the park.

However, bringing in some young fresh blood to the midfield seems a sensible idea. 

Here are some Blues fans discussing Tchouameni:
