Liverpool have reportedly joined a long list of clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United in the race for Monaco’s Aurelien Tchouameni. The midfield sensation is Europe’s latest wonderkid as the Ligue 1 side brace themselves for a potential bidding war.

Tchouameni is a highly-gifted technician with bundles of quality but his stock has now started to sky-rocket.

He first burst onto the scene at Bordeaux before being snapped up by Monaco in 2020 and now the 21-year-old has continued to go from strength to strength.

Didier Deschamps handed him his first international call-up with France back in August and now Tchouameni is a regular for Les Blues.

With N’Golo Kante isolating due to a positive COVID-19, it was Tchouameni who stepped up to play in midfield alongside Paul Pogba in France’s recent Nations League triumph.

The semi-final and final of the tournament helped shine further light on the young sensation, who will not be short of options come the end of the season.

According to Julien Laurens, Liverpool have now entered the fray with the Reds keen to explore a deal for the generational talent.

PSG, United, Man City, Chelsea and Real Madrid are also believed to be interested.

Monaco reportedly want between £42million and £50m for their superstar.

The Reds are still yet to replace Gini Wijnaldum after allowing the Dutchman to depart on a free transfer at the end of last season.

Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott have continued their impressive progression but Liverpool are still lacking a midfielder of Wijnaldum’s mould.

Tchouameni likes to dictate play and is the heartbeat of this Monaco side and there are similarities between his game and Wijnaldum’s style of play.

Liverpool are continuing to scout the French international and their position on a potential transfer could become clearer closer to the January transfer window.
