Aston Villa manager Unai Emery is determined to sign Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram.
The Lowdown: ‘Huge’ January budget
The Spaniard looks set to be handed a ‘huge’ January transfer budget from NSWE and will have a major say on any incomings.
The Latest: Emery’s stance
They claimed that Emery is ‘determined’ to sign the Frenchman as he looks to take Villa into Europe, with the club possibly only needing €10m (£8.6m) to land the 25-year-old in the New Year.
The Verdict: Get it done
Thuram, who is with France at the World Cup, currently holds a €30m (£25.9m) Transfermarkt valuation.
He can also play anywhere across the front three, so you could so that a potential £8.6m transfer should be a no-brainer for Villa, especially with a new A-list forward wanted and Emery being so keen on the player.
