Originally from Chad, Loum Tchaouna started playing football at U6 level for FC Kronenbourg in the city of Strasbourg. This left-footed centre-forward then went to SC Schiltigheim for the 2010/2011 season and then spent the next three seasons with RC Strasbourg Alsace. In 2014, he joined the Academy set-up at Stade Rennais in the Youth Section, starting at U13 level. During the 2018/2019 season, and despite his young age, he was promoted to the age category above in the U17s and U19s playing at National level. In that season, he would finish top scorers in the Stade Rennais Academy with 23 goals, of which 20 were scored with the U17s and 3 with the U19s. Brother of a former Chad international, he would not go on to represent his native country, but instead played for the French U16s, gaining 9 caps, scoring twice in that time. On 10th December 2020, he signed his first professional contract with the Red and Blacks, which will come into effect on 1st July 2021, tying him to Rennes for three seasons, until 2024.
