Liverpool target £50m rated “complete midfielder” compared to Steven Gerrard

Liverpool are reportedly targeting Monaco and France International star midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

The 21-year-old has been compared to Steven Gerrard amid reported interest from Premier League giants Liverpool, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur, Monaco manager Paul Mitchell told Tuttosport.

Tchouameni did put up a fantastic display for the Les Bleus at the UEFA nations league finals, filling in for N’Golo Kante amid a positive Covid-19 test.

The Monaco star dominated the center of the park as France saw off Spain, laying the foundations for Kylian Mbappe’s dramatic late winner.

“He is a complete midfielder, very fast and physically strong. He reminds me of Steven Gerrard,” said the former Spurs director

Mitchell played a key role in the deal that brought Tchouameni to the Principality from Bordeaux two years ago.

According to Marca, the Monaco ace will cost £50 million for clubs willing to sign him anytime soon.

Liverpool have joined the likes of Juventus in holding talks, with Tottenham and Newcastle also interested ( MediaSet).

“He is already a top player despite being only 22 but if we want to become a top club, then we should not sell him,” Mitchell adds.

“We are an ambitious club. Everyone, from President (Dmitry) Rybolovlev to coach Niko Kovac, is ambitious here.

“We’ll assess the situation at the end of the season. The player is under contract until 2024 and his transfer value is one of a top player.

“Everything is expensive in Monte Carlo. Let’s say that Tchouameni is as expensive as the Grand Casino.”
