Real Madrid and Liverpool need long-term midfield reinforcements.
The 22-year-old isn’t going to be cheap, reading Mitchell’s comments, but the French midfielder has a bright future ahead of him, and both clubs being linked may be looking to replace their ageing midfielders.
Liverpool currently have Fabinho, Thiago, James Milner and Jordan Henderson who are all in and around their thirties, so will need replacing in the long term.
Real Madrid are in a similar position, due to the age of Luka Modric, Casemiro, and Toni Kroos. However, they do have Eduardo Camavinga in their ranks, who is of a similar age and profile to Tchouameni.
