Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni could potentially join Liverpool this summer, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.
The Lowdown: Tchouameni linked with move
Jurgen Klopp could be looking to make midfield reinforcements this summer, considering it is an ageing area of the Reds’ squad.
One player who has been linked with a move to Liverpool is Tchouameni, who is arguably one of Europe’s most highly-rated young midfielders.
The Latest: Romano drops fresh claim
“So keep an eye on Liverpool, keep an eye on what happens at Manchester United, because they will go for a midfielder.
“But at the moment, there are still no negotiations open for Tchouameni. But he could be a huge chance for the Premier League clubs. I’m told that they are really keen on signing him in the summer.”
The Verdict: Perfect summer addition
Tchouameni is an enormous prospect who has been described as ‘extraordinary’ by Paul Pogba, and he looks like someone who could be the perfect addition to Liverpool’s midfield.
He could come in as a squad player initially but it likely wouldn’t take long before he was an integral part of Klopp’s team, combining quality on the ball – he enjoyed a 90.9% pass completion rate across five appearances for France in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers – with tenacious work off it.
With the likes of James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Thiago all now in their 30s, and Fabinho turning 29 this year, it is vital that fresh legs come in in the middle of the park. Tchouameni is perfect, in that respect.
