McLeish believes that Liverpool will already have made signing Tchouameni a “priority" this summer.
“I think they'll have already have identified him as a priority," McLeish told Football Insider.
“Knowing Liverpool, knowing the way that Klopp works, he's a consummate professional.
“They will have their little black book full of players from every position from all over the world.
“We'll see Liverpool making business when they want to make business. It won't be on the back pages of the sports papers."
