Tchouameni has developed into one of the hottest prospects in French football after racking up 50 appearances for Monaco across all competitions in 2021/22, with five goals and three assists.
Reports from Mundo Deportivo claim a deal is edging closer to completion and Tchouameni has reached out during international duty with France.
The 22-year-old has asked Monaco to accept Real Madrid’s interest with the two clubs still some distance apart on a fee.
Real Madrid are aiming to keep the transfer at a maximum price of €85m with Monaco holding out for over €90m.
