Tottenham: Spurs ‘working’ on Marcus Thuram move

Tottenham: Spurs ‘working’ on Marcus Thuram move -Tottenham Hotspur News

Tottenham Hotspur are ‘working’ to sign France forward and World Cup-bound star Marcus Thuram, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Paratici’s transfer plans…

Despite heavy spending in the summer transfer window, the north London club could further back Antonio Conte with major signings mid-season.

In Tottenham’s quest for a second successive Premier League top-four finish, sporting director Fabio Paratici firmly has the likes of Ruslan Malinovskyi in his mind as Spurs plot to strengthen key positions.

Thuram, who has also been linked with a move to north London recently, may now leave current club Borussia Monchengladbach in January for a bargain price.

The Latest: Tottenham ‘working’ on Thuram move…

Reports from Italy claim that the Bundesliga side would like to bring in a fee of around €10m (£8.7m) for their key player as they green-light a cut-price sale.

This comes after Gladbach had originally demanded around €40m (£35m) for Thuram last year, but the player’s contract situation, with his current deal expiring in 2023, has forced their hand.

Information courtesy of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) has now claimed Spurs are ‘working’ to sign the 25-year-old as a result. However, they will face serious competition from cross-town rivals Arsenal, along with European heavyweights Bayern Munich, Juventus, Inter Milan and Marseille.

The Verdict: Get it done…

Signing a player of Thuram’s ilk for £8.7m is quite simply an unmissable opportunity for Tottenham.

Dubbed a ‘world class’ striker of the ‘highest international class’ by Wolfsburg sporting director Marcel Schafer (via GFNG), he has stood out as Gladbach’s main man this season.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

As per WhoScored, he is the Foals’ best-performing player by average match rating, chipping in with 10 goals and three assists in the Bundesliga.

Paying a fee below £10m for a proven attacker who has also made France’s squad for the World Cup would be a bargain of the highest order.
