Liverpool have reportedly met Khephren Thuram’s entourage after recent rumours suggested that the OGC Nice is now a target for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
According to RMC Sport, the Reds have been in talks with the 22-year-old’s team amid growing interest in the midfielder. As per the report, Liverpool could strike an agreement with Nice worth just €40m (£34m) to bring the youngster to Anfield.
A talent lauded for having the ‘perfect’ profile as per RMC Sport journalist Alex Jaquin, Thuram is one of the most sought-after youngsters in all of Europe having established himself as a Ligue 1 superstar as well as a member of the France national team.
With Liverpool in the market for multiple midfielders this summer, Thuram makes a lot of sense for the Reds as a potential signing. And with the club now in talks with the player’s entourage, a potential deal could now be firmly in the works.
Indeed, Thuram’s rise to the top has been one of the best stories in football over the last 12 months. And with Liverpool now firmly stepping up their interest in the midfielder, there’s a real chance that an opening offer could soon be made to sign the youngster.
Thuram could thrive at Liverpool alongside Mac Allister
Thuram is a potential midfield superstar in the making, with the 22-year-old having the size to dominate any division in Europe as well as the technical and mental intelligence to control the tempo of any game with the right set of players. And Liverpool could be a perfect next club for the Frenchman.
Alongside the pending arrival of Alexis Mac Allister, Thuram has everything needed to succeed at Anfield. And under a coach like Klopp, the midfielder could easily become one of the best midfielders in the world if given the right treatment and platform to take his game to the next level.
