Despite successfully acquiring Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister for their squad, Liverpool is still actively searching for another midfielder in the transfer market.
While several candidates such as Gabriel Vega and Manu Koné have been mentioned, the frontrunner for the second signing is believed to be Khéphren Thuram, a midfielder from Nice.
Thuram is an exceptional talent in the footballing world, standing tall at 1.92m with excellent athletic ability. He played in 48 matches as a key player for his current club this season, solidifying his position as a crucial player for Nice.
He also made his debut for the French national team in March of this year, drawing attention to the future of this talented player who comes from a family of French internationals.
Liverpool was expected to quickly finalize a deal to sign Thuram, just as they did with Mac Allister, but as of now, the signing has not been confirmed.
This could be partly due to his participation in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship, and Liverpool is planning to make an offer to Nice once the tournament concludes, according to the French newspaper Nice-Matin.
Additionally, Nice has set a minimum transfer fee of €40 million for Thuram. Liverpool is reportedly preparing an offer close to that amount, but the two clubs have yet to reach a final agreement. He would be an ideal addition for Liverpool, who wants to add height and strength to their midfield.
Some media reports have even claimed that an agreement has already been reached with the player and his representatives. If the clubs can come to an agreement, he may end up heading straight to England.
Liverpool’s pursuit of Thuram is not surprising, given their desire to strengthen their midfield with quality players. They are searching for a player who can contribute to their team’s performance, and his impressive records and potential make him an attractive target for the club.
So, will Liverpool be able to bring in their top target of the moment? Only time will tell.
Football fans worldwide are eagerly following this transfer saga, and it will be interesting to see how the situation develops in the coming weeks.
