Transfer News: Tottenham keen on securing the signing of Marcus Thuram

According to transfer news from Foot Mercato (h/t Mirror), Tottenham are very much intent on signing French international Marcus Thuram from Borussia Monchengladbach this summer.

Thuram came through the youth ranks at FC Sochaux and had a stint with Guingamp before signing for Gladbach in the summer of 2019. Since joining the Bundesliga outfit, the 23-year-old has grown into a key player for the Foals, bagging 25 goals and 21 assists in 79 games so far.

Thuram enjoyed a solid 2020/21 campaign during which he produced a return of 11 goals and 12 assists from 40 matches in all competitions. A versatile player, the forward can play anywhere across the frontline and even broke into the France national team towards the end of the last year owing to his impressive form and was part of the Euro 2020 squad as well.

Son of French legend Lilian Thuram, the 23-year-old has now emerged as a key transfer target for Tottenham, as per the report. It is no secret that Spurs will be needing attacking reinforcements in the summer given as Carlos Vinicius’ loan deal came to an end.

Throw in the uncertain future surrounding star striker Harry Kane, who could very well leave after the Euro 2020, the signing of a new forward is very much warranted.

Thuram, to that end, can be a fine addition, given the flexibility he can offer in the final third with his versatile nature. In addition, at 23, the Frenchman is bound to get better with age and experience.

Irrespective of whether Kane stays or leaves, Tottenham need to bring in a new forward. And Thuram, who is said to be valued at a modest £25.7m, can be a fine addition in the short and long run, given his age and potential.
