According to a report from 90 Min, Liverpool are keen on securing the services of Aurelien Tchouameni this coming summer, as part of their plans to rejig the midfield department.

The report states the Real Madrid midfielder has emerged as the ideal option for Jurgen Klopp, as he looks to add fresh blood in the middle of the park. Tchouameni has been a long-standing target for Liverpool and were even interested in the player even before his move to Real Madrid.

Although a move to Anfield did not materialise back then, Liverpool have shown fresh interest in the player. They have informed Real Madrid they want to get their hands on the Frenchman, even if he is available on a loan deal.

Liverpool were one of the clubs who were in contention to sign Jude Bellingham, but it appears the Borussia Dortmund starlet has opted to join Real Madrid instead. With Bellingham no longer an option, Liverpool are sensing a market opportunity to sign Tchouameni.

Formerly of Monaco, Tchouameni has endured a difficult start to the year so far. Ever since the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the youngster’s performances have dipped, which has seen him struggle to gain regular minutes under Carlo Ancelotti.

With Bellingham likely to join the Real Madrid team, coupled with Toni Kroos and Luka Modric’s continuity, Tchouameni’s role in the first-team could dwindle further next season.

This, in turn, could open up the opportunity for Liverpool to snap him up. But as the report states, Real Madrid consider the player ‘untouchable’. Despite his recent struggles, the club view him as a long-term asset and will not offload him at the end of the season.

Liverpool, therefore, must set their sights on other alternatives, as they look to add more quality in the middle of the park.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Saudi Arabia has triggered a wave of massive establishment within the country so much so that the league has approached players like Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Sergio Ramos and even Karim Benzema. 

Benzema’s departure from Real Madrid is imminent and if a report from Diaro AS is to be believed, the Frenchman contacted his former Madrid teammate, Ronaldo, to ask him for information about the Saudi league, living conditions and other teams.

All this because it is said that the legendary Frenchman has received a lucrative offer from the newly crowned Saudi Pro League champions Al Ittihad. As reported before, the star striker will earn more than €100 million per year across his two-year contract with the Saudi team.

At the moment, the Saudi government has approved all of Benzema’s requests and while it is said that he can join the team of his choice, Al Ittihad’s recent flirting had made them absolute favourites.

That said, the transfer may have taken a u-turn recently, as Benzema spoke about staying at Real Madrid for the foreseeable future.

“Speak to the fans? Speak about what? Why should I speak of the future if I’m in Madrid?”, Benzema said

“It’s the internet speaking, and reality is not the internet.”

In a recent turn of events, Helder Costa openly spoke about Benzema’s arrival, saying that his team is ‘excited about the arrival of the Balon d’Or winner.’ As if that is not enough, a club fan also showed a Karim Benzema edit on the big screen during their title celebrations.

Meanwhile, since the transfer is not confirmed, Real Madrid continue to be uninformed of Benzema’s decision. And this remains a major problem for the team from the capital city as their summer transfer plan hinges on the continuity of the Frenchman.

At the moment, the team is said to be closing in on the signing of Joselu from Espanyol. However, it must be noted that the forward will only be arriving on a season-long loan as Madrid already have big plans for the summer of 2024, with Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe both lined up.
