Liverpool is trying to rebuild its midfield, which has lost its strength, in order to get rid of last season when it suffered from poor form. Liverpool got off to the best possible start with the acquisition of Argentine midfielder Alexis Mac Allister, who has proven himself at Brighton.
But progress has been slow due to the fact that some of the candidates are participating in the U-21 European Championship 2023.
Although negotiations are expected to move forward as soon as the tournament is over, unsettling news has emerged. According to the Sports Zone, OGC Nice wants to keep Khéphren Thuram and has no intention of selling him this summer.
The player himself wants to play at Anfield, and a personal agreement is not a problem at all. He is the perfect complement to the strength and height that Liverpool lacks at the moment, and considering his age (22 years old), they should add him to the team at all costs.
Ryan Gravenberch, Manu Koné, and Gabri Veiga have also been touted as strong candidates, but Thuram is the highest priority, and the key will be whether they can convince Nice after the youth competition.
Will Liverpool succeed in acquiring Thuram after Mac Alistair?
