Liverpool leads the battle for Khephren Thuram, also preparing a £45m investment Transfers

With the departure of Jordan Henderson and other regular midfielders, Liverpool has added four new players, including Alexis Mc Allister. A wealth of athleticism has returned to the midfield, and each has been active in the Premier League and Europa League.

Meanwhile, numerous midfielders were rumored to have been linked with the club during the summer transfer window. Among those who came as close as possible to joining Liverpool was Khéphren Thuram, a former French U-21 midfielder who plays for Nice. He is a thoroughbred whose father and brother also play on the front line.

It is said that Liverpool’s interest in the 22-year-old midfielder, in which Juventus is also interested, is waning, but the Italian newspaper Tutto Juve has a 180-degree different view. The Premier League club is leading the race and is willing to pay as much as £45 million for the player in the winter transfer window.

Liverpool, who have made major reinforcements, are also reportedly looking to further strengthen their midfield. Names such as Fluminense midfielder Andre, Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips, and Aston Villa midfielder Douglas Luiz are being tossed around.

Considering that Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajcetic are out injured, one could argue that the squad is adequate. The fact that there are more articles in the gossip papers than other candidates also seems less credible.

The chances of him joining Liverpool in the near future are infinitesimally small, but will tall midfielder Khéphren Thuram choose the rumored England or Italy as his next step up the ladder…?
