La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid are reportedly closing in on signing Aurelien Tchouameni, a target for Liverpool and PSG, in a €100 million deal.

According to French outlet Foot Mercato, Real Madrid will likely clinch the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni in the summer transfer window in a deal worth €100 million, including add-ons. The AS Monaco midfielder is also a target for PSG and Liverpool, although the Reds have cooled their interest in the Frenchman.

Aurelien Tchouameni has become one of the most highly sought-after players in the market since joining AS Monaco from Bordeaux in January 2020. The Frenchman has established himself as a mainstay for club and country in the last two and a half years, with his progress attracting several high profile clubs across Europe.

The 22-year-old has featured 95 times for the Ligue 1 outfit in the last two and a half years while chipping in with eight goals and seven assists. And Tchouameni will likely leave AS Monaco in the summer transfer window to take the next step in his career, with Real Madrid, Liverpool, and PSG keen on signing him.

Tchouameni is reportedly a priority target for Real Madrid, who recently reopened talks to sign him this summer. And the Spanish giants have moved quickly in the pursuit of the young Frenchman, who is reportedly keen on joining them ahead of the 2022/23 season. With Casemiro on the wrong side of 30, Tchouameni is the ideal candidate to bring in as the Brazilian’s successor.

As for Liverpool, the advancing years of James Milner, Jordan Henderson, and Thiago Alcantara have compelled Jurgen Klopp to ask for a young central midfielder. And Tchouameni is a viable target for Liverpool, who once led the race to sign the 22-year-old ahead of Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, PSG will need to overhaul the midfield department in the summer transfer window, with the performances of Georginio Wijnaldum, Ander Herrera, Danilo Pereira and others leaving a lot to be desired. And Tchouameni is the perfect candidate to revolutionise the PSG midfield, with Kylian Mbappe keen on linking up with his compatriot at Parc des Princes.

But PSG and Liverpool are fighting a losing battle to sign Tchouameni, with Real Madrid on the brink of landing the French international in a deal worth €100 million, including bonuses. The Reds have decided against signing Tchouameni anyway, leaving PSG as the sole rivals for Real Madrid.

But with Tchouameni already agreeing to join Los Blancos, PSG’s hopes of signing him are fading drastically. A €100 million move to the Santiago Bernabeu looks likely, with Real Madrid making Tchouameni their marquee summer signing.
