However, with the emergence of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ross Barkley, as well as Trevoh Chalobah and Reece Jame sbeing able to play in midfield, it is expected that the Blues will have to let a midfielder leave before looking to bring in Tchouameni.

The report finalises by stating that a move could depend on how much Tuchel wants a new midfielder.

N'Golo Kante and Jorginho have been on fine form since the German's arrival in England and Mateo Kovacic has had a good start to the season, meaning that a move may not be seen as a priority.
