Liverpool: Reds race for Aurelien Tchouameni heats up further

Liverpool: Reds race for Aurelien Tchouameni heats up further -Liverpool News

Liverpool are reportedly still interested in signing highly-rated Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni but could now face even more competition for his signature, according to a fresh claim out of Italy.

The Lowdown: Tchouameni excelling in France

The 22-year-old has emerged as one of Europe’s most exciting young players, producing dominant performances at the heart of Monaco’s midfield.

Tchouameni has started 28 Ligue 1 games so far this season and has averaged an impressive 2.8 interceptions per game, as well as 2.5 tackles and 2.3 aerial duel wins.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Frenchman in the past and their interest doesn’t appear to have gone away – but they now face even more competition for his services from European giants and seven-time Champions League winners AC Milan.

The Latest: Reds face Tchouameni competiton

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, as also relayed by The Liverpool Echo, the Reds now face stiff competition from Serie A giants AC Milan.

Indeed, the Rossoneri have joined Liverpool as one of the clubs thought to be vying to sign Monaco’s gem.

The Verdict: Incredible summer addition

Tchouameni looks a truly outstanding prospect currently – he has been lauded as ‘extraordinary’ by Paul Pogba in the past – and he could be the perfect midfield signing for Liverpool this summer.

With the likes of Thiago, Jordan Henderson and James Milner all in their 30s now, and both Fabinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in their late 20s, the Monaco man could bring an injection of youth to that area of the pitch.

While mainly considered more defence-minded than attacking, there is no reason why Tchouameni couldn’t be an option in one of the No.8 roles under Jurgen Klopp, having averaged 1.1 dribbles per match in the league in 2021/22.

Bearing this in mind, beating fresh contenders Milan to his signature would be a fantastic summer boost for Klopp.
