Liverpool handed Aurelien Tchouameni transfer ‘boost’ as Barcelona target Sadio Mane


Your Liverpool transfer rumours as the Reds have been handed a reported boost in their pursuit of Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

The season is coming to an end and the talk of the summer transfer window is hotting up as teams look to improve on their current campaign with new signings. First of all, Liverpool have business to attend to and that means lifting their second trophy of the year on Saturday.

Liverpool take on Chelsea at Wembley at the weekend in their first FA Cup final under Jurgen Klopp – giving the German the chance to complete the set of honours to be won while in the hot seat at Anfield.

The Reds will be without Fabinho at Wembley after the midfielder suffered a hamstring injury, so Jordan Henderson looks set to fill that deeper role as he did when he came on at Villa Park. Here are your Liverpool transfer rumours for Thursday, May 12.

Liverpool have reportedly been handed a boost in their pursuit of France international Aurelien Tchouameni as Monaco prepare to sell the midfielder.

Manchester City are also said to be interested in the highly-rated midfielder as Monaco gather a list of targets to replace their most prized asset.

It is understood Monaco would look for a fee of around £50million if they are to sell the 22-year-old.

Sadio Mane is ‘happy’ at Liverpool after the Reds star has recently been linked with a move to Barcelona.

The Senegal forward is entering the final year of his contract at Liverpool and there has been no talk of a renewal so far with all focus on the contract of Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool veteran James Milner is out of contract at Anfield in the summer, but it is reported that Jurgen Klopp is wanting the 36-year-old to sign an extension.

Milner joined Liverpool from Manchester City seven years ago and has become a vital member of Jurgen Klopp’s squad as they went on to win trophies.

Klopp is hoping Milner will sign a one year extension to his current deal.
