Liverpool Should Risk One More Summer Chase of Tchouaméni

Klopp’s Midfield Conundrum

Repetitive player pursuits can be one of the more irritating things when supporting this era of Liverpool FC. Jude Bellingham and Kylian Mbappe have been the most prominent names in the recent past, in addition to the continual past links to André, Moisés Caicedo, Joško Gvardiol, Matheus Nunes, João Palhinha, as well as the target of this piece, Aurélien Tchouaméni.

Ever since the former Monaco midfielder was primed to leave France, Liverpool became the most frequently club linked to his signing. If rumours are to be believed, an initial medical had even been carried out, to establish any potential issues ahead of time. As the days ticked by in the summer of 2022, it became clear that the 6ft 2inch destroyer was waiting on the Bernabéu giants to make their move.

After a long and fruitless pursuit of Kylian Mbappe came to an end (in that summer), the legendary Real Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti, finally sanctioned a move for the then 22-year-old powerhouse. As a result of missing out on the elite potential player, Jürgen Klopp saw his middle ground crumble, as tired and overplayed legs left the 2022/23 season in tatters. The Sporting Director in that moment, Julian Ward, had banked on the acquisition of Tchouaméni, essentially given no alternative was targeted. The regeneration was created in part by the failure to secure the services of this man, however, one more summer chase could reverse that mistake.

Real Madrid’s Roster Overhaul

Would Jürgen Klopp Return for the Player That Rejected Him…?

It has been widely reported that after the failed pursuit of Jude Bellingham in the summer of 2023, the eventual Real Madrid signing would enable a second move for Aurélien Tchouaméni. After signing the former a Borussia Dortmund star last summer, the consensus was that the 14-time European Champions would be overloaded in midfield and must move on one of their assets. This ongoing 2023/24 campaign has seen England’s 20-year-old superstar explode in La Liga, with a tremendous season making him a front runner for the next Ballon d’Or. Within that midfield group is a plethora of brilliance, as the 34-year-old Toni Kroos and 38-year-old Luka Modric, continue to impress amongst a wealth of energetic talent. The brilliance and intensity of Federico Valverde is irreplaceable, with his tenacity offering the perfect blend of power and finesse.

The destructive and shielding duties rest with Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga, who have both proved brilliant since moving to Spain. The latter of those two young French prodigies has offered vital versatility, with an ability to play left back and varying midfield roles. If Real Madrid were to re-sign their two legendary veterans, Kroos and Modric, to extended deals (both see their current deals expire in the summer), it may well be that one of the less gifted players is moved on, as is often the way with Real. The Spanish club is often drawn to the next potential Galactico, therefore, a move for either Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland remains very feasible for the coming summer. A replacement for the departed Karim Benzema has yet to be found, with their club President, Florentino Pérez, always on the lookout for the next marquee signing. In that instance, funds may need to be generated to finance either blockbuster move.

As to whether Jürgen Klopp would sanction a return move for the 23-year

-old, Aurélien Tchouaméni, I believe his previous fascination would entice the German manager to make one more move. A starting and elite calibre defensive midfielder would complete the Reds’ middle ground, which would enable greatness for years to come. A £100m offer would potentially suit both sides, given the future plans of each historical club.

There are three elite names that should tempt the Anfield club into summer action, which would be Bruno Guimarães, Boubacar Kamara, or Aurélien Tchouaméni. Whether a £100m signing would represent spectacular business for Liverpool, I just hope it is something that can finally happen.

This article has been crafted to give you insights into Liverpool’s continued interest in Aurélien Tchouaméni, exploring the dynamics of a potential transfer and considering alternatives. It reflects the ongoing narratives in European football’s transfer market and Liverpool FC’s strategic planning.
