News – Liverpool ready to accept £25m fee to sign winger – report
The renowned news source has mentioned that Jurgen Klopp, who recently signed a new contract to extend his stay at Anfield, wants to strengthen things at the center of the park.
One of the candidates who convinces him the most is Aurélien Tchouameni. The Catalan outlet claims Los Blancos are in pole position at the moment but Liverpool aren’t going to give up.
MD claims Tchouameni’s move to Real Madrid could cost around €40m but the battle between the two clubs could increase the value.
Two days ago, AS journalist Sergio Santosclaimed the 13-time European champions will never pay a huge fee for the French midfielder, who (if signed) will initially be used as a substitute.
In March, sport reported that Monaco wanted around £50m from the sale of their prized asset.
Last year, Liverpool lost Wijnaldum on a free transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. The Dutch international was one of the most important midfielders in Klopp’s side which won the Champions League (2019) and Premier League (2020).
The Reds are yet to replace him and in all honesty we haven’t really missed him in the current campaign mainly because all of our midfielders have remained fit for the most part.
Nevertheless, considering that Milner, Hendo and Thiago are veterans, new blood is needed for the future. Do you think Liverpool should move to sign 22-year-old Tchouameni?
