According to Marca, the Spanish giants have identified the 21-year-old France international as a key target for next summer’s window after Kylian Mbappe as their transfer plans for 2022 already begin to take shape.

Tchouameni played the full 90 minutes as France fought back from a goal down against Spain to win the tournament for the first time.

Spanish publication Marca say that Madrid, who reportedly view Tchouameni in a similar mould to Casemiro, face competition from across Europe for the midfielder.

Chelsea are mooted to be interested in him and will have taken note that he is the man France turned to in order to fill the void of one of their own players in Kante.

Serie A giants Juventus have also been linked with making a move next summer.

Tchouameni has played 15 times for Monaco this season, scoring twice. He has five caps for France.
