Real ‘close in on’ Tchouameni & Diaz’s promise – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool look to come second to Real Madrid in the chase for Aurelien Tchouameni, while the Reds continue to share their appreciation for the overwhelming support at Sunday’s parade.


Real push forward for Tchouameni

Tchouameni has been reported as a Liverpool target since early January and in the following months that interest has steadily grown legs, with a midfield reinforcement certainly on the wishlist.

The 22-year-old has plenty of strings to his bow and with experience on his side with Monaco, he would represent an exciting signing for the present and future.

However, the Reds have not been alone in their interest and Real Madrid have long been said to be in the driver’s seat, which the latest reports only add to – even if he’d agreed terms with both clubs!

Reports Spain have now claimed a move to the Bernabeu is close, with Monaco looking to secure an €80 million (£68m) fee.

That figure would represent Liverpool’s second-highest transfer fee!
