Report: Liverpool Face Competition From Real Madrid In Battle For Monaco's Tchouameni

Monaco are reportedly demanding a fee of €60million for Aurelien Tchouameni with Real Madrid, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City all monitoring his progress.

The 21 year old midfielder who has broken into Didier Deschamps' France national team and is playing alongside Paul Pogba is now also attracting attention from La Liga.

Real Madrid Interest

As reported by Spanish publication Marca, Tchouameni is now on the radar of Real Madrid as they look to bring down the average age of their midfield.

The midfield of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric has been the foundation of Madrid's success over the past decade but the German is now 31 and the Croatian 36.

The re-construction of the midfield at the Santiago Bernabeu started in the summer as another young elite talent, Eduardo Camavinga, was signed from Rennes.

Tchouameni's impressive performances for Monaco and France in the UEFA Nations League appear to have now sparked the interest of Real president Florentino Perez and manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Premier League Interest

Last week, LFCTransferRoom published details of a report from Tuttosport claiming that the Reds held an interest in the player.

It would appear however that interest is growing across Europe as Marca also report of interest from Chelsea and Manchester City for the powerful midfielder.

LFCTR Verdict

There is no doubt that Tchouameni should be on the radar of Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool. Like Camavinga, he looks to have all the tools to become a world class player.

As the player is now being noticed on the big stage, any deal should be pushed through sooner rather than later to prevent a potential bidding war.
