After losing Moisés Caicedo and Roméo Lavia to Chelsea. The Reds have decided to switch their attention to new midfielders this summer transfer window.
Despite offering £115 million to Brighton Albion. The Ecuadorian youngster rejected Liverpool to join the West London club.
Meanwhile, they cannot leave their midfield open, having seen their statistics on Sunday against Chelsea. As a result, they have to sign a new midfielder to balance the squad.
In addition, the Reds are still interested in Roméo Lavia of Southampton. Even though the 19-year-old Belgian is most likely to join Chelsea.
Frankly, it doesn’t look good on Jurgen Klopp’s side. Losing both Caicedo and Lavia to the West London club in the same transfer window.
The Reds looked shallow in the midfield against the Blues at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Therefore, they are hellbent on signing a new midfielder.
Of course, the Premier League side wants to compete with Manchester City this season. So they need a new midfielder to balance the team’s display.
As a result, Liverpool have reportedly made an inquiry about Aurélien Tchouaméni and Federico Valverde of Real Madrid. Because one of the midfielders is most likely to be available.
Since the Reds were able to table a fee of £115 million for Moisés Caicedo. They are capable of paying any amount for the Frenchman or the Uruguayan.
However, it doesn’t look like Real Madrid would want to lose either of the midfielders. Because they are literally part of the club’s future in Europe’s top-5 leagues.
Meanwhile, Liverpool were once linked to Aurélien Tchouaméni. That was before he joined Los Blancos in La Liga from the French league, for a record fee.
Carlo Ancelotti plays the 4-3-3 formation at Real Madrid. As a result, he usually operates and destroys the opponent from the midfield.
However, in the midfield of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Camavinga, Valverde, and Tchouaméni. Real Madrid may allow one of the players to leave.
Federico Valverde is very loyal to Los Blancos. He’s most unlikely to leave the La Liga side this summer transfer window, but the Frenchman can join the Reds.
Alexis Mac Allister was forced to play the defensive role in the midfield on Sunday. With Dominik Szoboszlai and Cody Gakpo as his partners.
However, they all played out of their natural positions. Because there was no defensive midfielder in the squad, having lost Moisés Caicedo and Roméo Lavia to the West London club.
Bringing Aurélien Tchouaméni to Anfield this summer transfer window won’t be easy. Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp’s side are able to make the deal happen.
Simply put, Liverpool have inquired about Real Madrid’s Aurélien Tchouaméni and Federico Valverde. The Reds see them as alternatives to Caicedo and Lavia.
