According to reports, Chelsea are inching closer to a deal to sign Aurelian Tchoumeni.
Thomas Tuchel wants to strengthen his squad by giving special priority to the midfield area.

Tchouameni also shares an agent with Sevilla defender Jules Conde – another target for the Blues.
Meanwhile, according to reports, Liverpool have launched an ‘extremely interesting’ offer for AC Milan star Frank Casey.
The Ivorian contract at the San Siro is set to expire at the end of the season.
Casey, 25, is set to continue with the club’s interest.
And according to Italian outlet Ansa, Jurgen Klopp’s side is looking to jump to the front of the queue.
Finally, Newcastle have reportedly intensified the search for Lillee defender Sven Boutman.
According to the Mail, the Magpies have intensified talks with Lillee about a £30million move.
The 21-year-old Dutchman is deemed ‘eager’ to move to Newcastle, despite the club’s dangerous league position.
Howe considers defensive signals a priority, and has bookmarked Boutman as one of his top targets.
