Aurelien Tchouameni transfer news: Respected source tips Liverpool to go and break bank

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have been tipped to break the bank and sign Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni this summer, according to one source.

Klopp and Liverpool’s famed transfer committee have not got too many deals wrong over the last few years. In fact their transfer policy, which has seen the likes of Luis Diaz, Ibrahima Konate and Diogo Jota arrive has been bang on the money.

Already the Reds have sealed the a deal for Fulham attacker Fabio Carvalho ahead of next season. But Klopp and Co are scouring the market for new arrivals with a midfielder likely to be top of that list.

Of course the club’s priority is to tie down Mo Salah to a new deal, but they are also hunting for youthful talent.

Liverpool’s midfield does have an ageing look to it. Jordan Henderson and James Milner are aged 31 and 36 respectively, while Thiago is also 31.

One player who has been interesting Klopp is 22-year-old Tchouameni.

Foot Mercato have reported Liverpool have made contact with Tchouameni’s camp.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein reported Tchouameni was a scouting target for the Reds in January and according to The Times, Liverpool’s interest is genuine.

Fabrizio Romano has now claimed that Liverpool have more than a passing interest in Tchouameni. And Romano thinks the Reds will make a move for the midfielder, who is under contract until 2024.

“Aurelien Tchouameni is certainly a player being monitored by Liverpool, who have had conversations with the agent of the Monaco midfielder. However, the €45m price tag – set last summer – is no longer valid. A far higher offer will be needed to prise Tchouameni away from France,” Romano told Anfield Watch.

“But the 22-year-old is planning for a different experience this summer. And that is undoubtedly why Liverpool may be ready to make their move. However, Real Madrid has been following Tchouameni for some time. And the Reds will face competition from other top clubs interested in the French international.”

Interest in Tchouameni will be intense. Monaco look destined to sell at the end of the season. And AS claim a fee of around £59m has been set by the Ligue 1 side.

Arsenal and Manchester United are also keen though.

Gianluca Di Marzio has told Wett Freunde that Arsenal are one of the Premier League sides interested in signing Tchouameni, with the midfielder keen to come to England in the future.

“A lot of clubs in the Premier League follow him. Arsenal, Manchester United to name just two. He would like to play in the Premier League. He stayed with Monaco for another year to wait for the chance to play in the Premier League. I think it will be the summer he changes,” said Di Marzio.
