Aurelien Tchouameni has the world at his feet right now, with the top elite clubs in the world interested in his services. The two clubs leading the race right now are the 2022 Champions League finalists Real Madrid and Liverpool.

According to reports from Sky Sports, Chelsea too are interested in the defensive midfielder. However, the general understanding is that the player will join Los Blancos in June and snub a move to the Premier League.

Earlier this week, the youngster spoke to Mundo Deportivo and hinted at the clubs in the race for his signature. He said,

“I like the Spanish games and the English ones. It’s different playing in Spain or England. But in the end for me it’s just a question of adaptation. I am an ambitious person,” Tchouameni said.

“Every time I do something I just want to win. If I want to be great, I have to adapt in order to gain some things that allow me to grow as a player.”

Tchouameni has established himself as a regular starter under Philippe Clement, starting 33 league games for AS Monaco at the tender age of 22. In the process, he has scored three goals and provided two assists.

The defensive quality that the Frenchman produces is immense and is what makes him so highly sought after in the transfer market. He averages a whopping three interceptions, 2.5 tackles, 7.5 duels won and a clearance per ninety minutes.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Los Blancos had reached an agreement over his move to the Santiago Bernabeu for a fee of €80 million. While the fee seems to be excessive, Kylian Mbappe’s cancelled transfer makes way for such a signing.

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
