Liverpool and Man Utd are both chasing the midfielder while it’s also reported that Real Madrid and Manchester City are believed to be interested in him too.
Jurgen Klopp’s side was linked quite heavily with the 21-year-old at the end of the summer transfer window but as we now know, Liverpool only signed Ibrahima Konate while offloading a number of players.
Chief among the outgoings was Georginio Wijnaldum and while the Dutchman has admitted his move to PSG has not gone to plan so far, the Reds could also do with more depth in the middle of the park.
Tchouameni is a fantastic midfielder and while he has been labelled a defensive midfielder, he has spoken out about his desire to become a well-rounded player and reach his full potential.
He’s got a commercial partnership with Nike and while I’m not sure that gives Liverpool a better chance of signing him, given the Reds recent deal with the American brand it could be beneficial.
That said, Man Utd need to reinforce their midfield as well and if it comes to it, Liverpool can easily be outbid as far as wages and financial incentives are concerned but Jurgen Klopp has consistently proven that so long as he is at the club, Anfield will be more attractive than Old Trafford.
The Red Devils might have signed Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho but money is not the dictating factor in football despite what some may think and hopefully, Tchouameni’s representative’s ESN will be telling him that.
I believe I’ve said it before but he’s perfect for the Premier League. Not only does he read the game brilliantly but I don’t think he would struggle with the speed of the game at all unlike some midfielders have when making the switch from France to England.
He wins the ball with incredible efficiency and when he does, he is able to move it on with one or two touches and when he does hold onto to the ball, it’s only when he bursts through midfield with impressive strength and pace.
I’d simply love to see him in Liverpool’s midfield as he’d add much-needed excitement to the Reds’ engine room.
