Liverpool boss Klopp met Tchouameni in Monaco, but...

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made a personal attempt to convince AS Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni about a move to Anfield.

Tchouameni is at the top of the club's wanted list amid links with a move to both Anfield and Real Madrid. But Tchouameni, who had also been touted as a target for Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, is now on the brink of a switch to the European champions.

Marca says Liverpool boss Klopp made a special trip to Monaco in order to convince the Frenchman to move to Anfield, while he also held a phone call with the midfielder.

However, Tchouameni could not be persuaded against the idea of joining Los Blancos.

Tchouameni is now on the verge of joining Real for a £68million fee, which includes add-ons.
