Chelsea: Blues hold agent talks to sign Marcus Thuram

Chelsea: Blues hold agent talks to sign Marcus Thuram - Chelsea News

Chelsea have made contact with the agent of Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram to discuss a potential move to the Premier League, according to reports.

The Lowdown: After Nkunku

The Blues have already agreed a deal to sign RB Leipzig striker Christopher Nkunku in the summer, but that hasn’t stopped them from wanting to bolster their attacking ranks this month in a bid to secure a top-four finish.

Thuram will be out of contract at the end of the season and could be available on a cut-price deal having not yet signed fresh terms at Gladbach, and following a recent update, there’s a possibility that he could soon be making his way to Stamford Bridge.

The Latest: Chelsea hold Thuram talks

According to 90min, Chelsea have ‘spoken with the representatives’ of the France forward to discover his availability, with the club ‘hoping to secure’ a deal before the end of the January transfer window.

Graham Potter’s recruitment team are believed to be ‘sensing a potential bargain’ given the striker’s contract situation, and Gladbach are ‘keen’ to sanction his sale this month, with the west Londoners’ interest ‘welcomed’.

However, the 25-year-old wants to ‘explore’ his options before making a final decision on what his next destination will be.

Would Thuram be a starter for Chelsea?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

The Verdict: Massive coup if it comes off

Thuram has previously been dubbed a ‘beast’ by Jacek Kulig, and it would be a massive coup for Chelsea should they be able to fend off competitors and secure the Frenchman’s signature this month.

The 25-year-old has clocked up an outstanding 67 goal contributions (41 goals and 26 assists) in just 119 Bundesliga appearances, highlighting how prolific he can be in the final third (Transfermarkt).

Armando Broja has been ruled out for the season after sustaining a serious knee injury, so Thuram would also provide excellent cover and competition for places for the other attacking members of the squad at Stamford Bridge.
