'Big statement signing': Journalist makes Liverpool transfer claim on 'perfect' £42m midfielder

Pete O’Rourke believes Liverpool would be making a “big statement signing” if they signed Aurelien Tchouameni this summer (GiveMeSport).

The Reds have enjoyed a remarkable season so far. And ahead of the home straight, Jurgen Klopp penned a new contract at Anfield.

And ahead of next season, the Reds will no doubt bolster their ranks further, with Tchouameni a top talent reportedly on their radar.

French outlet Foot Mercato has recently claimed that Liverpool have made contact with the player’s entourage ahead of the summer transfer window.

Klopp is apparently planning for a midfield future without James Milner and Jordan Henderson.

And the Reds boss reportedly sees the Monaco starlet as the perfect replacement.

However, Tchouameni is apparently also on the radar of virtually every other top club in Europe.

“A really top young player”

O’Rourke believes fending off the competition for Tchouameni would represent another significant purchase for Klopp during his Anfield reign.

“It would be another big statement signing from Liverpool if they’re able to sign Aurelien Tchouameni,” he wrote on GiveMeSport.

“He’s a really top young player already playing in the France team as well.

“Lots of clubs have been linked to him. The likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, all the top clubs across Europe.

“So, if Liverpool were able to sneak in there and lure him to Anfield, it would be a big signing for Jurgen Klopp.”

Regarded as ‘perfect’ for the Premier League by Fabrizio Romano, Tchouameni is apparently valued at a minimum of £42million by Monaco.

However, there has also been mention of them demanding more than £80m as well.
