Reds ‘looking at’ Tchouameni & double CL injury worry – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are straight back into it tomorrow night with the Champions League semis first leg – so today it’s the usual pre-match routine of pressers, transfers and injury news.


Reds one of several keen on Monaco midfielder

You’ve probably heard the name by now, with Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni hitting the headlines for big performances and big transfer rumours alike.

He’s an all-round star in the making, equal parts ball-winner and ball-carrier who has good technique, a ferocious style and plenty of runway to improve further – so it’s no wonder Liverpool are being linked.

And it’s genuine interest, says Dominic King of the Mail, suggesting the Reds are almost certain to add a centre midfielder of a similar profile this summer as the next part of the rebuild takes centre stage.

“No question he is a player they are looking at but other clubs in frame, too, most notably Real Madrid, who are favourites,” King wrote. “Liverpool, however, most definitely looking for a midfielder with his qualities.”

Best be saving those pennies up, he’ll cost quite a few!
