Real Madrid are eager to get Aurelien Tchouameni in this summer. The Monaco ace is seen as a replacement for Casemiro.
The Los Blancos have sent their chief scout, Juni Calafat to Monaco in France. They want to secure his signing as many European clubs are interested in him.
The Monaco star is seen as the next best defensive midfielder. Real Madrid have already signed a youngster from Ligue 1 this season, Eduardo Camavinga, and are now looking to sign another this summer.
He will definitely improve the Los Blancos’ squad as he can be a backup to Carlos Casemiro. Real Madrid do not have a perfect replacement for the Brazilian at the moment.
Aurelien Tchouameni has been impressive this season
Tchouameni is having a great season so far at the Stade Louis II. The French midfielder is giving his best for Monaco and he plays a crucial role in his team.
He is tasked to break the opposition’s attacks by interceptions and tackles. The 22 year old has done a good job in doing so as he averages 2.5 tackles, 2.7 interceptions, and 0.7 clearances.
The French midfielder has a great ability to sense danger and he makes tackles that disrupt the rhythm of the opposition.
Moreover, has the eye to make a line breaking pass. The French defender has decent passing stats as well with 87 percent accuracy as he tries to link the defense with the midfield.
He is also able to maneuver himself out of a difficult situation with his physicality and quick feet as he has completed an average of 1.1 dribbles.
Aurelien Tchouameni: style of play
An athletic and sturdy midfielder, Tchouameni can carry the ball forward which helps his team to progress up the pitch. This is why he gets into shooting positions and averages 1.7 shots per game.
Big clubs want a defensive midfielder like him who can step up and contribute in the final third as they have most of the possession in the match.
At 22 years of age, Tchouameni is very mature as his match awareness and intelligent movements are evident to see.
His offensive numbers are average because that is not his role. But with a much better side, he can improve that side of the game as he is still pretty young.

Should Real Madrid go for Aurelien Tchouameni?
Currently, Real Madrid are unable to give Casemiro rest in some games as there is no one who can properly replace him. They have tried Camavinga and Valverde in a double pivot but that takes out one of Kross or Modric.
Alaba can also play as number 6 but he has to play at center back as the Los Blancos have had some defensive issues in this season.
So, bringing in Aurelien Tchouameni will solve this problem and it goes with their transfer policy of bringing in young talents which is why they want to seal the deal soon.
Camavinga’s French teammate can form a formidable pair at Madrid in the near future. With Mendy at left back and Benzema upfront, Real Madrid have a strong French core.
