Mason Mount is a force that has come to stay

Chelsea eye move for midfield monster

Chelsea are reportedly interested in the acquisition of highly-rated Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni according to a report from Goal. The detailed report linked the 21-year-old midfielder with the Stamford Bridge outfit and also described him as a midfield monster after series of strong displays for the Ligue 1 outfit in recent times. The player would fit the bill at Chelsea as the likes of Jorginho and Kovacic are not as energetic and hard-working as N'Golo Kante, and these are traits that Tchouameni can offer to the Blues if a deal materializes. A move for him would enhance Thomas Tuchel's further improvement of the team ahead of the 2021/22 football season.

Blues and Foxes deprived each other on separate fronts

The FA Cup final at Wembley was one game that Chelsea went into as favorites but ended up losing as Leicester City were up for it, with the London outfit not being able to breach their backline successfully. A screamer by Youri Tielemans was enough to settle the matter on the day as the Foxes won another major silverware after their Premier League triumph some seasons back. It can also be recalled that ahead of the FA Cup final, there was also little concern about who would finish in the top four as both sides who thought they were home and dry allowed Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool back into the race for a place in the top four with their inconsistencies. The two sides were to face each other in another season-defining game in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge. THE BEST SITES FO...
