Monaco midfielder linked as football world hails Salah genius – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool’s weekend draw with Man City and Mohamed Salah‘s performance within the game continues to dominate headlines – and will do for a while no doubt, since it’s another international break now.


Tchouameni linked to fill ‘free’ midfield role

Aurelien Tchouameni has impressed with Monaco over the last couple of years and is busy doing so again this year, with rumours appearing about him on a weekly basis now.

Juventus are the main side interested according to Italian outlets, but Real Madrid and other sides have already been linked too – as have Chelsea and Liverpool.

That’s the current chatter, with Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp both said to be keen to add him to their squads, with Tuttosport suggesting Jurgen Klopp wants him to fill the hole in midfield left by Gini Wijnaldum‘s departure.

That seems to be a bit of doubt in the rumour, at least, as Klopp has continuously said that others – Curtis Jones and, before him, Harvey Elliott – are getting their chances now largely because Wijnaldum is no longer there, so it remains to be seen if we go and add another €40m-rated name into the mix.

  • Remember when in the midst of injuries and defeat, he promised we’d achieve our aims and seal a top-four spot last season…then we did? Good news! Now Mo has promised we’ll fight for the title and we’re good enough to do it

Tweet of the day and match of the night

Two or three more internationals in the second break of the season already, is it? Good good!

No games tonight. Maybe not ever again. That’s what it feels like, anyway…
