Chelsea: Marcus Thuram transfer talks opened

Chelsea: Marcus Thuram transfer talks opened -Chelsea News

Chelsea have opened talks with Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram over a move to Stamford Bridge, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The Lowdown: Chelsea ‘charging’ towards Thuram signing

The Blues are looking to sign a new attacker in the January transfer window as Graham Potter seeks an upturn in fortunes after a poor run of results either side of the mid-season break.

A recent report claimed that Chelsea are ‘charging‘ towards the signing of Thuram, who played a part in France reaching the World Cup final last month, making five appearances in the tournament in Qatar.

A fresh update has emerged from Romano, one which suggests the Blues could be closer to getting their man.

The Latest: Chelsea open talks with Thuram

Taking to Twitter on Saturday afternoon, Romano said that talks are now taking place over Chelsea potentially signing Thuram, with his current Monchengladbach deal expiring this summer.

The Italian tweeted:

“Understand Chelsea have opened talks to explore January deal for Marcus Thuram. The French striker’s on many top clubs list being a free agent in June, Chelsea exploring conditions for Jan.

“Thuram will take his time and consider all the options, as @Santi_J_FM called.”

The Verdict: Ideal attacking signing?

Thuram could be exactly what Chelsea need, with the Frenchman renowned as a scorer and creator in the final third who is very clever in his movement, as per a scout report from The Coaches’ Voice.

The 25-year-old has already scored 10 goals in 15 Bundesliga appearances for Monchengladbach this season, half of Chelsea’s Premier League tally. He has 41 goals in 119 games overall for the German club and has also been described as ‘world class‘ by Wolfsburg sporting director Marcel Schafer.

Thuram could be an upgrade on an out-of-sorts Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang and give Potter the reliable focal point that the Blues manager is craving at the apex of his attack.
