But with Chelsea unable to do business under their current sanctions put in place by the UK Government, that leaves Liverpool with the opportunity to poach the midfielder. The 22-year-old has been a key part of Niko Kovac’s Monaco side, and plays the same position as Liverpool star Fabinho.
Fabinho was also signed from Monaco, and Klopp could repeat his earlier business with a deal for Tchouameni and build the star up ready for when Milner departs, and eventually Henderson. According to AS, both PSG and Real Madrid are also interested in the midfielder, but the Frenchman would favour a move to England.
Tchouameni already has seven caps for France and caught the eye during the European Championships over the summer, but his rise has only increased Monaco’s asking price. The Frenchman will not be sold for less than £42million, a steep mark-up on the £16m Monaco paid for him back in 2020.
