Liverpool’s summer transfer window was not without its turbulence. But, in hindsight, the mass midfield exodus and subsequent influx has reshaped and restored a side in decline. So, Liverpool are keen to sign tchouameni in this transfer window.
Last season, the Reds languished and looked pitiful in the face of some heavy adversity. Their fifth-placed Premier League finish was an apt reflection of a miserable campaign.
Jurgen Klopp even admitted that he could face the sack in April should the terrible form seep into the 2023/24 season, having just slumped to a 4-1 defeat against Manchester City; it would have been an ignominious end to an illustrious reign.
Out with the old, in with the new – or so it goes. The likes of Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Fabinho were shown the door. Hence, an exciting new clutch of midfield talent has thus far pumped vitality and quality into the squad to uphold Klopp’s system.
Liverpool are keen to sign Tchouameni :
Klopp and co wanted the perfect addition, and after the pursuit of Aurelien Tchouameni ended fruitless. The Frenchman joining Real Madrid in a €100m (£85m) transfer, an unadventurous end to the market set the Anfield side up for failure.
Last year, Liverpool were fighting fiercely to secure Tchouameni’s services. Fabrizio Romano even confirmed that they were among the frontrunners for the touted talent.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side, however, always looked to have the lead in the race and indeed triumphed. Moreover, they compounded Liverpool’s upset after defeating them in the Champions League final.
Now, according to Mundo Deportivo, Anfield remain suitors for the 28-cap France international. As Arsenal’s budding interest grows, though any move would probably be unlikely in the immediate future.
Regardless, for all Liverpool’s success in rebuilding the midfield recently, a specialist No. 6 is still required. As Wataru Endo not considered the long-term, first-choice solution – Tchouameni, it seems, would be the dream option.
