In their race to acquire the French midfielder, Liverpool was dealt a devastating blow when the European powers ‘offered’ the player.Roughly two Serie A behemoths are among the top European clubs that have reportedly made offers for Liverpool target Khephren Thuram in advance of the January transfer window.

Thuram’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, reportedly verified to the audience at the recent Social Football summit in Rome that the midfielder is prepared for a promotion. Additionally, Pimenta disclosed that she had been contacting “leading clubs” prior to the January transfer window.

 

European powerhouses including Juventus and Inter Milan are among those vying for the central midfielder from Nice. After signing an extension in 2021, he is currently under contract in France until 2025; however, he could be on the move as early as January.As a consequence of Thuram’s importance to Franceso Farioli’s squad, Nice are likely to demand a substantial transfer fee of approximately €40 million.

 

Since joining the club in 2019 from Monaco, he has appeared in 148 games, contributing to eight goals and eleven assists.A relation of the 22-year-old is Italian football through his sibling Marcus Thuram, who signed a contract with Inter until 2028 after joining the club in the summer. Lilian Thuram, their father, likewise spent a decade in Italy, dividing that time between two five-year stints with Parma and Juventus.

 

Ligue 1 performer Khephren Thuram could be the next member of his family to move to Italy, following his impressive form.

 

The Frenchman has appeared in ten matches in the top division this season, all but two of which have been in the starting lineup.

 

Liverpool learns of the possibility of acquiring a teenage Barcelona target in January, and the agent offers Klopp a substantial incentive.

 

An Italian interest deals Liverpool a severe setback.

The squad of Jurgen Klopp has been closely monitoring Thuram for some time. Despite the Reds’ substantial midfield overhaul in the summer, which included the acquisitions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, there is still a sense that they have unfinished business.Liverpool, who were previously affiliated with Thuram during the summer but ultimately decided to pursue other opportunities, are now rumored to be interested in making another effort to acquire the player.They currently encounter formidable competition from the two Italian powers. Juventus are in critical need of a new midfielder following the suspensions of Nicolo Fagioli (betting) and Paul Pogba (doping).

 

However, Inter may have the upper hand due to the attendance of Marcus, the sibling of Khephren, at the club.
