Chelsea are reportedly interested in Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.
According to ESPN, the Blues are huge admirers of the 21-year-old as he continues to impress in Ligue 1.
The Frenchman made his debut in Ligue 1 at 18 years old and has been working under former Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac.

Tchouameni has made 26 league starts for Monaco this campaign, helping the club contend for the Ligue 1 title.
