Tottenham: Spurs eye free Marcus Thuram deal

Tottenham: Spurs eye free Marcus Thuram deal - Premier League News

Tottenham have set their sights on Borussia Monchengladbach star Marcus Thuram who is set to leave on a free deal at the end of the season.

The Lowdown: Spurs linked…

The France international has been on Spurs’ radar as per reports in the press with Newcastle also among those thought to be interested.

While the north Londoners are thought to be prioritising the addition of a world class central defender, Antonio Conte‘s side are also on the look out for a possible Son Heung-min alternative.

Links to Marco Asensio have also been prevalent in the media with The Times now sharing an update on their pursuit of Thuram.

The Latest: Spurs eye free Thuram move…

According to the reliable newspaper, Spurs are among the clubs eyeing a move for the 6 foot 3 forward, coming after Gladbach confirmed he will depart in the summer.

Thuram is set to leave as a free agent with Gladbach sporting director Roland Virkus, as relayed by this report, declaring he ‘will leave’ and the fact they’re set to lose him for nothing is not a ‘positive’ situation.

The Verdict: Go for it…

The 25-year-old’s departure is certainly bad news for the Bundesliga side, but their loss could almost certainly be Tottenham’s gain.

As per WhoScored, the attacker ranks as one of Gladbach’s best-performing players this campaign, chipping in with 11 goals and three assists in the German top flight alone.

How much did Spurs pay to sign future legend and fan favourite David Ginola?

In that time, Thuram has averaged more shots at goal per 90 than any of his teammates and sits in their top four in terms of key passes and completed dribbles (WhoScored).

Fellow club chiefs have called the player ‘world class‘ and his instrumental performances for Gladbach even earned him a call up to France’s squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

On a Bosman, a move for Thuram could end up being one of the bargains of the summer.
