Darwin Nunez

Liverpool FC is making significant moves in the summer transfer window, and their next target is OGC Nice’s rising star, Khephren Thuram. Negotiations are in full swing, with both clubs actively discussing a potential deal for the talented French midfielder. This comes after Liverpool’s recent signing of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. The Reds are eager to further strengthen their midfield after the departures of James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Progressing Negotiations for Khephren Thuram

According to transfer insider Rudy Galetti, Liverpool and OGC Nice are actively engaged in discussions regarding Khephren Thuram’s transfer. The clubs are working towards reaching an agreement, with a potential fee of around €40-45 million (£34-39 million). Additionally, there seem to be no issues regarding personal terms, indicating that a deal could be within reach.

As Liverpool seeks to reclaim their status as top contenders, Khephren Thuram could be a crucial addition to the squad. His dynamic playing style and relentless runs would inject energy into the team. Over the past year, Thuram has ranked among the top 6% of midfielders in Europe’s top five leagues for progressive carries. Likewise, he is in the top 9% for successful take-ons per 90 minutes, showcasing his attacking prowess.

Unlocking Darwin Núñez’s Potential

Liverpool’s record signing, Darwin Núñez, had an inconsistent first year in the Premier League. However, with Thuram’s arrival, Núñez could find the support he needs to thrive. Núñez registered impressive stats in terms of total shots and expected goals per 90 minutes. He could massively benefit from Thuram’s creative abilities and eight assists in the last season.

Thuram’s presence on the pitch could finally unlock the full potential of Darwin Núñez, Liverpool’s Uruguayan forward. Núñez, despite showing promise with 15 goals in 26 starts across all competitions, has faced challenges converting scoring opportunities. With Thuram as a central force, pushing through the thirds, and providing crucial support, Núñez could shine as a prolific goalscorer for the Reds.

Moreover, Aaron Ramsey, describes Thuram as a “dangerous” midfielder. The former Arsenal manrecognizes the impact he can have on the team’s performance. Thuram’s ability to drive forward and create chances for his teammates makes him a valuable asset. Consequently, Liverpool must capitalize on the opportunity to sign this vibrant talent.
