MONACO midfield sensation Aurelien Tchouameni has reportedly been promised a move next summer, with Newcastle the latest club to emerge as a potential destination.

Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and a host of Europe’s top clubs have also been linked with a transfer for the £43million rated French international.

But now Newcastle have ‘entered the scene,’ according to outlet El Nacional.

The mega-rich Saudi owners have ‘planned’ a lucrative package to offer both Tchouameni himself and his club Monaco.

And the youngster may well be tempted by a move to Tyneside.

A move to the Toon would make the 21-year-old the star of the show, with the Tchouameni keen to play a prominent role at his next club.

He has his eyes firmly set on a 2022 World Cup spot with France, and a move to Stamford Bridge or a fellow European giant would not guarantee the same playing time that he would enjoy at Newcastle.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez had expected Tchouameni to join the Bernabeu outfit.

But after his France team-mate Eduardo Camavinga signed in the summer and has had limited opportunities, Tchouameni is reassessing his options.

Monaco currently value their man at £43million but could ramp up their price with the amount of clubs interested.

PSG and Bayern Munich are two other European heavyweights monitoring his progress in Ligue 1.


Continued impressive performances between now and the end of the season could also sky-rocket Tchouameni’s price-tag.

And with more than two-and-a-half years left to run on his contract, Monaco possess a good deal of negotiating power.

Tchouameni has already played 20 times for Monaco in all competitions this season, scoring twice.

He also came off the bench in France’s 8-0 thrashing over Kazakhstan on Saturday.

But he did play the full 90 minutes in October’s Nations League final win against Spain.

His desire to play a starting role in the national team is expected to have a big influence on where he moves to next, which is music to the ears of Newcastle fans.
