Liverpool are allegedly ‘leading the race’ for Aurelien Tchouameni’s signature ahead of the summer window.
This comes courtesy of a tweet from Fichajes journalist, Ekrem Konur, with the reporter claiming that the Reds have made an improved bid for the Frenchman.

This would follow from prior updates on the 22-year-old from Fabrizio Romano suggesting that the £37.7m asking price initially touted would not be enough to see a prospective suitor land the midfielder.
Being apparently close to agreeing a deal with Calvin Ramsay after securing winter target, Fabio Carvalho, we could have an impressive array of business wrapped up before the season draws to a close.
The only remaining area in need of addressing at that point would arguably remain the forward line, with cover for Mo Salah a must in the next transfer window.
Complete all prospective deals (including the addition of a new forward) and it would mark one impressive start in the role of sporting director for Michael Edwards’ protege in Julian Ward.
