Tottenham Hotspur are interested in a deal to bring Marcus Thuram to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this summer.
That’s according to a report by French media outlet Foot Mercato (via Sport Witness), who claim that Tottenham are keeping a close eye on the situation of the Borussia Monchengladbach winger ahead of a potential move in the summer transfer window.
The report continues by stating that Spurs director of football Fabio Paratici would support a move for the 23-year-old, as well as claiming that the forward is a priority for the north London side this summer.
It is also claimed that the France international himself is open to a move away from the Bundesliga side, with Monchengladbach thought to be demanding a fee of at least €30m (£25.5m) in order to sanction to the sale of the forward ahead of next season.
Considering just how much potential Thuram appears to possess, it is unsurprising to learn that Tottenham are keen on signing the winger this summer.
Indeed, over his 29 Bundesliga appearances for Adi Hutter’s side last season, the £31.5m-rated man scored eight goals, registered two assists and created four big chances for his teammates, as well as taking an average of two shots and making 0.6 key passes per game.
These returns saw the man Denis Zakaria call a “phenomenal” talent earn a seasonal SofaScore match rating of 6.91, ranking him as Monchengladbach’s 10th-best performer in the top flight of German football.
The £43k-per-week winger also impressed during his brief appearance for France at Euro 2020, making one key pass, completing one dribble and winning one duel in the 3-3 draw with Switzerland, with his display earning a SofaScore match rating of 7.2.
As such, it would very much seem as if Thuram would be an extremely exciting addition to Nuno Espirito Santo’s options in attack at Tottenham next season, as well as being the type of player who fans of the club would love to see running at and creating problems for opposition defenders.
It’s exactly why they will be buzzing with this latest update on Thuram.
