Man City eyeing transfer move for ‘powerful’ 22-year-old machine linked with Juventus.



‘Powerful’ 22-year-old machine connected with Juventus is the subject of a transfer move that Manchester City is considering.It has been claimed that Manchester City is interested in signing Khephren Thuram, a midfielder for OGC Nice players.


In ad dition to Ilkay Gundogan leaving the club after seven years, the Citizens refreshed their midfield by bringing in Mateo Kovacic and Matheus Nunes during the previous summer transfer window. This was also the time that Ilkay Gundogan said goodbye to the players.Now, however, the Manchester club has set their sights on potentially adding another midfield figure to their ranks; but, in order to do so, they may have to compete with one of the major teams in Europe.


City is interested in acquiring Thuram.According to a story that was published not too long ago by TV Play, City is considering making a transfer approach for Thuram, who has further garnered interest from Juventus.


During the summer transfer window of 2019, the Frenchman made his way to Nice from AS Monaco on a free transfer.In the time since then, the 22-year-old forward has made 149 appearances for Nice before to this weekend’s league encounter against Nantes. During that time, he has scored eight goals and provided eleven assists.


The fact that Thuram has been able to demonstrate how much of a beneficial offensive figure he can be from the middle of the field is an accomplishment that he has accomplished this season with 11 appearances in Ligue 1.


For instance, he has the second-most number of carries into the final third of the pitch (31) and critical passes (14) at the club, in addition to having the highest number of shot-creating actions (35) in the Nice team. He also has the highest number of key passes (14) at the establishment.


During the month of February, Aaron Ramsey, a former midfielder for Nice, referred to Thuram as a “very dangerous, very powerful, and a very strong dribbler.” This description demonstrates the potential that the Frenchman may bring to Pep Guardiola’s team.With all of this in mind, we believe that if Pep Guardiola and the recruitment department at City believe that the Nice star would be a strong addition to their squad, then they should do all in their power to beat Juventus or whoever else may be interested in signing him and secure his contract.
