Amid the ebb and flow of his debut season at Real Madrid, Aurelien Tchouameni’s performance trajectory has been a rollercoaster. The French midfielder’s arrival from AS Monaco ignited optimism in the Spanish capital, but the bright flames dimmed, particularly post the World Cup. Gradually, his once-assured starting spot dwindled, often relegating him to the bench during high-stakes encounters.
Surprisingly, this dip hasn’t deterred elite European clubs from coveting Tchouameni. Throughout the continent, his name remains enmeshed in the transfer grapevine. Follow your favourite La Liga team with attractive football betting odds from Nextbet.
Of these clubs, Liverpool has persistently emerged as a potential destination for Tchouameni. Over the past days, these speculations have surged in intensity.
The Reds’ recent disappointment in securing Moises Caicedo’s signature, with the Ecuadorian midfielder choosing Chelsea, still stings. Adding salt to the wound, Romeo Lavia, another midfield prospect, appears inclined towards Stamford Bridge rather than Anfield.
This confluence of events has forced Liverpool into a complex predicament, fuelling talk of an attempt to lure Tchouameni from Real Madrid. However, it begs the question: Is Los Blancos or the player himself receptive to such a move?
Intriguingly, The Athletic reports that Real Madrid views Tchouameni as a cornerstone player, implying that his departure isn’t under consideration. Simultaneously, the Frenchman appears disinclined to entertain the idea of an exit.
Liverpool’s dalliance with Tchouameni predates his Real Madrid tenure. Despite their prior interest, a deal remained elusive before his move to Spain, and current circumstances suggest a repeat scenario this summer.
Nevertheless, Tchouameni’s fortunes seem to have turned, as he regains his spot in the starting XI. Carlo Ancelotti’s tactical shift to a 4-4-2 formation has breathed new life into the Frenchman’s role at the core of the midfield quartet.
As the transfer saga unfolds, Tchouameni’s future remains shrouded in uncertainty, entwined with the unwavering stance of Real Madrid and the evolving landscape at Liverpool. Get the latest updates from the La Liga only on Nextbet Sports.
