According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool will battle Chelsea for the signature of Monaco teenager Khephren Thuram in this summer’s transfer window.
Khephren is the son of France legend Lilian Thuram, who played for Monaco, Parma, Juventus and Barcelona during a wonderful career.
The 47-year-old is actually the most capped player in the history of the France national team, having made 142 appearances for his country.
The former defender has two sons, the second of which – Khephren – currently turns out for principality side Monaco.
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are chasing the 17-year-old, but the Reds will face competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea.
It is certainly an interesting situation to monitor, particularly when considering that Juventus have also ‘watched’ the teenager during the 2018-19 campaign.
Khephren has not yet signed professional terms with Monaco, despite the fact that he has already made three first-team appearances for the club.

Born in Italy, the teenager has turned out for France at Under-18 level and according to transfermarkt, mainly operates as a defensive midfielder.
It would be fair to say that the youngster is quite an unknown quantity when it comes to assessing whether he could thrive at a club of Liverpool’s size.
Living up to his father’s reputation is going to be incredibly difficult, but the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Juventus do not monitor a player unless he has a lot of talent.
