In a recent report, Gianluca Dimarzio mentioned that Real Madrid are locked in a three-way battle for Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni. It has been stated that Los Blancos will have to compete with Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to acquire the services of the French midfield ace this summer.

Tchouameni’s Impressive Form At The Stade Louis II

Tchouameni had a solid campaign in French football recently as he managed to catch the eye by putting in a handful of dominant displays at the centre of Monaco’s midfield. The 22-year-old has participated in 50 matches for the French club this season, netting five goals and securing three assists across various competitions.

The Rouen-born talent has made a positive impact in both halves by averaging 2.5 tackles, 2.9 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 1.6 shots, 0.6 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even taken care of possession when distributing the ball from midfield, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 86.7% in the English first division (stats via whoscored).

Real Madrid Face Stiff Competition For Tchouameni: Is He Worth The Fight?

Tchouameni can get stuck in with some crunching tackles to make life tough for the opposition at the centre of the park. He usually times his challenges well to make a few solid interceptions for his team in midfield and doesn’t mind clearing his lines when the opposition are on the front foot. The French talent can make some powerful runs with the ball towards the opponent’s penalty box and has even chipped in by scoring and creating his fair share of goals in the final third.

Tchouameni will undeniably be an excellent signing for Los Blancos as he is good enough to serve as a long-term successor to Luka Modric, who is entering the last stage of his career at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Furthermore, the Monaco sensation could go on to form a dominant midfield partnership with Eduardo Camavinga at the Madrid club over the next decade. Hence, Tchouameni is well worth the fight, so Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti should consider going all out to land the French youngster this summer.
