Liverpool plot move for Aurelien Tchouameni

Liverpool are interested in signing French midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni from AS Monaco to bolster their midfield.

What’s the word?

Journalist Paul Joyce stated in The Times [via Liverpool Echo] that the Anfield management are looking at the 22-year-old despite interest from Real Madrid.

A move will all depend on the price – with the midfielder’s market value currently at £36m according to Transfermarkt, it could take a lot more than that to prise him away from the Ligue 1 club.

Jurgen Klopp could bolster his midfield with Tchouameni signing

Klopp’s Liverpool side have been superb this season, winning the Carabao Cup and currently in the running for another three trophies in what could be a historic campaign for the Anfield club.

Despite this, the German is constantly seeking to improve his squad, replacing aging stars with young and hungry understudies.

Should Liverpool sign Aurelien Tchouameni?

Yes

No

Thiago has been a standout player this season for the Reds, especially in the Premier League, averaging 1.2 key passes per game and completing 89% of his passes.

A team containing him and Tchouameni – who Paul Pogba described as “extraordinary” – would surely excite the Anfield faithful.

The French youngster could even be a better option in Liverpool’s midfield than Naby Keita. Whilst the Guinean has played fewer games than the 22-year-old this season, Tchouameni has a pass completion rate of 87.1% compared to Keita’s 86.5%.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Ajax's Perr Schuurs

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

In an attacking sense, the Monaco player has taken more than double the amount of shots that Keita has, with 48 compared to just 20 for the Liverpool man.

Tchouameni has also contributed more heavily in a defensive sense too, making nearly three times as many tackles compared to the Reds ace (91 to 33). These figures show that the Frenchman could be the perfect signing for Liverpool and would likely be an upgrade on some of their options at the moment.

Klopp will have some big decisions to make in the summer transfer window, and a potential swoop for Tchouameni could be among the best of them.
