Tchouameni on Liverpool radar

Liverpool have made initial contact with the agent of Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, Foot Mercato claims.

The Frenchman was heavily linked with Chelsea last summer, but they were reluctant to sign him due to his inexperience.

The west London giants could return for him this summer, but Foot Mercato claims that the Reds are aiming to have the edge.

The Merseyside giants have already opened talks with the midfielder’s entourage ahead of a potential summer transfer.

Monaco are likely to demand at least €50 million up front for the 22-year-old, who made his international debut this term.

Manchester United are also admirers of the former Bordeaux graduate, but are unlikely to land him without Champions League football.

The Red Devils have had a dismal league campaign, and are currently six points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, who have a game in hand.

With just four matches left in the season, their chances of returning to the elite European competitions appears a distant possibility.
