Liverpool: Reds ‘main rivals’ for Aurelien Tchouameni, price tag named -Liverpool News

Spanish newspaper AS (via Sport Witness) have brought a fresh update regarding Liverpool and the pursuit of highly sought after AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni. 

The lowdown: Rife speculation

With the summer transfer window fast approaching it appears that the interest in the 22-year-old Frenchman is intensifying.

The Reds have been extensively linked with Tchouameni in recent weeks despite the main focus being on the upcoming FA Cup and Champions League finals, as it becomes apparent a future away from the Ligue 1 outfit awaits at the end of the ongoing campaign for the powerful youngster.

Now as the speculation rumbles on, it’s been suggested that the Anfield club will have to pay big money to fend off Real Madrid and PSG…

The latest: ‘Very close’

The Spanish press believe the Reds have already made their first offer, and now according AS, translated by SW, sources close to the player have indicated a major move is expected this summer – the player has decided to leave Monaco.

It’s claimed that Liverpool are the ‘main rivals’ to Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in the pursuit of the eight-cap France star, who is ‘very close’ to resolving his future and currently prefers a move to the Spanish capital.

The report also states that the Reds will need to spend between €70-80million (£60-68million) in order to sign the ace hailed as ‘outstanding’ by journalist Robin Bairner following a recent match-winning brace against LOSC Lille.

The verdict: Much-needed signing

Given the cruel setback suffered to Fabinho ahead of a crucial month for Jurgen Klopp’s side, the timing of the links to Tchouameni couldn’t be more salient.

Predominantly operating as a defensive midfielder, with very strong tackling and aerial ability (WhoScored), the Frenchman would be the perfect candidate to bolster the Anfield ranks as currently there is no natural understudy for Fabinho.

This season, Tchouameni has added goal contributions to an ever-developing game with seven in 48 appearances across all competitions whilst also boasting an average Sofascore rating of 7.33, the eighth-highest in Ligue 1, just behind the likes of PSG trio Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
