Aurelien Tchouameni is a player Paul Pogba rates highly, and there is no surprise to see Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea interested in the midfielder.

Manchester United midfielder Pogba told Ouest France in September 2021 that Tchouameni has “extraordinary technical and physical quality”.

We covered Pogba’s comments here on HITC Sport.

Pogba himself is one of the best midfielders in the world, and him speaking so highly of the AS Monaco youngster shows just how good he is.

Liverpool interest

So, we were not surprised last week when Tuttojuve reported that Liverpool have made contact with Monaco to sign Tchouameni.

We covered the report here on HITC Sport.

The France international is a very dynamic midfielder who would make Liverpool better in the middle of the park.

And he is only 21.

However, it is now being reported that Tchouameni wants to move to Chelsea.

Chelsea to deal Liverpool blow?

TEAMtalk have reported today that Tchouameni is keen on a transfer to Chelsea.

Liverpool, Manchester United, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also credited with interest in the 21-year-old.

Chelsea are reportedly planning to do a deal with Monaco now that will see him move to Stamford Bridge in the summer of 2022.

This will come as a blow for Liverpool.
