The well-known journalist Fabrizio Romano has asserted that Liverpool has been in “regular communication” with the representatives of the player Aurelien Tchouameni, who is of interest to Real Madrid. The Italian reports that the Reds are aware of Los Blancos’ “advantage”. But they are keeping a close eye on the discussions that are taking place between Monaco and Madrid.
Aurelian Tchouameni, a young midfielder who now plays for AS Monaco, has become one of the most sought-after young midfielders in Europe. During the 2021–22 season, he played 50 times for Monaco. He recorded five goals, and three assists. His performance was nothing short of spectacular.
Real Madrid and Liverpool have both been attempting to get the player. But according to Romano, the Frenchman has a “preference” for Madrid. Real Madrid has been competing with Liverpool to sign the youngster.
What did Fabrizio Romano say?
The specialist on player transfers provided an update regarding the midfielder in the article that he wrote for Anfield Watch. He said:
“On the other hand, the club has been in communication with Aurelien Tchouameni’s representatives for several months. Discussions are also taking place often in recent days since Liverpool is aware that Tchouameni has given precedence to Real Madrid. But the discussions between the Spanish club and AS Monaco are still happening and will continue.”
Romano also said that the next week would be “extremely significant” for the Tchouameni transaction. Both Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain will be keeping a close watch on the situation. He said this because both clubs are keeping a careful eye on the issue.
He added: “Liverpool are keeping a watchful eye. PSG is also paying close attention to events to have a better understanding of how Real Madrid will make use of this advantage. This next week will be very significant for the Tchouameni agreement. In preparation for the 2022–2023 season, Liverpool needs midfield reinforcements.”
Liverpool’s stance on the signing of the Real Madrid target:
In the 2021-22 season, the Reds gave it their best in an attempt to win the quadruple. But, they ended up falling short of winning the two most prestigious medals that were up for grabs. They are going into the next season with much more fervour and enthusiasm than before. They need reinforcements, particularly in the middle of the field, to maintain battling on all fronts throughout the 2022-2023 season.
Even though he is their most creative player in the middle of the field, Thiago is prone to injuries. It has not exactly been the case that Naby Keita lives up to the hype. Captain Henderson is well over the age of 30, and it shows. The Merseysiders need to acquire players who are in their early 20s and eager to make an impact. They need players who can quickly adjust to the style of play that Jurgen Klopp employs and continue to dominate for many years to come.
Tchouameni would have been a fantastic addition at Anfield. But it seems that he will be moving on to Madrid instead. Nevertheless, if anything shifts and a chance presents itself, the 19-time English champions must make the most of the situation.
