But Chelsea and Juventus won't make it easy for the Spanish side. Thomas Tuchel's side have been claimed to be leading the race out of the Premier League clubs.

Monaco will review all offers between January and June ahead of the summer transfer window next year for their €40 million-rated midfielder. 


However, whether Chelsea need another midfielder or not to add to their ranks remains uncertain. Tuchel has an array of options in the central midfield position, with Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour also set to return next summer at the end of their loan spells.
