Fabrizio Romano has responded to speculation linking Liverpool with a move for Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.

Liverpool spent the majority of last summer chasing the Frenchman who ultimately ended up signing for Real Madrid.

There has been some reports that suggest Liverpool are considering making a move for Tchouameni again this summer. Arsenal have also been linked with the French international.

However, Fabrizio Romano has poured cold water on the idea, stating that it is highly unlikely that Tchouameni will leave Real Madrid just a year after signing for them.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Romano discussed the Tchouameni situation.

“Then guys on Aurelien Tchouameni, I am always receiving questions on English clubs, we had reports about Liverpool and Arsenal, at the moment Arsenal are not actively working on that type of player. Arsenal will announce Declan Rice very soon, in the midfield the idea is to understand what is happening with Thomas Partey and then to decide for a new midfielder to join the club. At the moment Thomas Partey is not something advanced with Saudi clubs,” Romano said.

“At the moment, no active contacts with agents of Tchouameni, let me say that the message is very clear from Real Madrid, they want to keep the player, it will not be easy to bring Tchouameni to English football. It looks very complicated.
