Liverpool: Fabrizio Romano gives Tchouameni update

Liverpool have been heavily linked with Aurelien Tchouameni this year, and now Fabrizio Romano has given an update on the potential transfer.

What’s the latest?

The Italian journalist and transfer insider wrote a column for Anfield Watch, revealing more information on the Merseyside giants’ interest in the Monaco midfielder.

Romano wrote: “Aurelien Tchouameni is certainly a player being monitored by Liverpool, who have had conversations with the agent of the Monaco midfielder. However, the €45 million price tag – set last summer – is no longer valid.”

“A far higher offer will be needed to prise Tchouameni away from France.”

“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.”

Klopp would love him

There is no doubt that the powers at Liverpool would not pursue the signing of a player without Jurgen Klopp’s approval, especially since he signed a new contract extension and Tchouameni is a prospect the German coach would love to have in his team.

Think you know all about Liverpool's title winners and where they came from? Test your knowledge... First, from which club did the Reds sign captain Jordan Henderson?

After Gini Wijnaldum left to join Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer last summer, it was expected that FSG would work to replace him in the same transfer window given the Dutch midfielder’s consistency and impact in the team, however, there was no signing made in the centre of the pitch, but that could be about to change a year on if the transfer talk is true.

When you compare the £83m machine to Wijnaldum this season there is no doubt that Tchouameni would be a worthy upgrade in the centre of the pitch winning over twice as many aerial and ground duels, completing over 1000 more passes, more tackles and making more ball recoveries according to Squawka.

Does Liverpool need to sign a midfielder?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With Manchester United and Real Madrid also reportedly interested in signing the 22-year-old star who was hailed “extraordinary” by Paul Pogba, Liverpool and Klopp will need to work fast to secure his signature but can ultimately offer him a better experience in the Premier League than their Manchester rivals, with Champions League football confirmed for next season at the very least.
