Thuram on the other hand is naturally a play breaker. He is calm on the ball, maintain possession under pressure, likes to press and tackle to win the ball back.
Still, the 22-year-old has also proved to be effective in the more advanced central midfield role and was able to directly contribute in ten goals in the recently concluded campaign.
The news source have mentioned that talks are now underway between Liverpool and Nice to reach an agreement over the fee of the transfer.
