Jurgen Klopp has reportedly made Aurelien Tchouameni one of several transfer priorities for the summer window, with the 54-year-old said to be an admirer of the midfielder.
The Reds have been linked with an array of options in the middle of the park, with the Anfield-based outfit allegedly keen on bolstering the department with the likes of Jordan Henderson and Co. in their 30s.
As one of the most highly-rated prospects in world football, our recruitment team, on the face of it, could hardly do worse than the holding midfielder.
With Real Madrid also on the line, however, it’s a potential transfer battle that could go down to the wire between two European heavyweights.
Inevitably, our own chances of securing a talent of Tchouameni’s quality (if the report in question is to be believed) will depend in large part on how far beyond the £42m figure touted Monaco are prepared to go as far as their asking price is concerned.
