Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are both “not ruled out” as possible destinations for Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni, according to Fichajes.net.
The Spanish rumour mongers claim that Chelsea are lining up a €70m (£59.5m) bid for the player as they seek a replacement for N’Golo Kante, but Monaco are said to be holding out for around €80m (£68m).
Real Madrid are reportedly favourites to snap up Tchouameni (with Liverpool also in the mix) but it appears that no club has so far met Monaco’s valuation. That is where City could come in.
Fichajes.net say that both the Premier League champions and PSG are “closely” monitoring the situation to see whether they can leapfrog their rivals to secure the midfielder’s services.
City are believed to be looking for a replacement for captain Fernandinho, who will leave on a free transfer when his contract expires next month, and Tchouameni could be the perfect successor.
