Liverpool: Fresh update on Tchouameni transfer emerges

Liverpool have been heavily linked with Aurelien Tchouameni this summer and now a new update has emerged on the club’s progress in securing the signing.

What’s the latest?

Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri has given an exclusive update to LFC Transfer Room on Liverpool’s pursuit of Monaco midfielder Tchouameni.

Tavolieri revealed: “Aurélien is one of the biggest priorities of the scouting staff of Liverpool.”

Klopp will love him

The news that the signing has become a priority for Liverpool will surely be an exciting prospect for supporters and with the side reportedly looking to improve their midfield strength this summer Klopp will surely love Tchouameni.

The Ligue 1 midfielder has been dominating in the centre of the pitch with the 22-year-old ranking first for interceptions in the opponent’s half, fourth in tackles completed and sixth for one-touch passes in the entire French league compared to his peers, according to One Versus One.

In what year did Steven Gerrard make his Liverpool debut?

Tchouameni could definitely inject some youth into an ageing midfield at Anfield in terms of the most defensive midfielders in the team with Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson all currently in their 30s, so bringing in a young player to develop alongside the more senior players would be a great coup for Klopp.

Not only does the £60m Monaco star, who was hailed a “game-changer” by Liverpool Echo journalist Charlotte Coates, offer incredible defensive attributes, but going forward and in terms of creativity Tchouameni has been outstanding for his team this season.

The Frenchman has scored three goals and contributed two assists, created five big chances and was successful in 73% of his dribbles proving that he has no problem progressing the ball forward and troubling opponents both defensively and offensively.

Do Liverpool need a new midfielder?

Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal have all also been linked with wanting to secure the signing of the youngster, so Liverpool will need to act fast if they are genuinely interested in recruiting Tchouameni this summer.

With that being said, Klopp and the powers at the Merseyside club must get this signing secured to improve and enhance Liverpool’s midfield even further to boost their chances to challenge for even more trophies next season and beyond.
