The midfield showing his real calibre at the start of the Ligue 1 campaign. French outfit OGC Nice wanted around £30-£35 million for Thuram as per multiple reports.

Thuram has been a key man across their successive draws against Lille and FC Lorient, as he started in both the games. Being a defeat midfielder, he played slightly forward, just ahead of Youssouf Ndayishimiye.

His defensive attributes are topnotch, however Thuram can also play as a part of midfield trio, where he can carry the ball, chasing down the opponent and supply the ball into the frontline. His numbers speaks of himself as with 84 passes, 90% pass accuracy, two major change created.

Midfielder’s defensive quality are among the very best as he had 9 tackles, two interception and 15/27 duels won. However Liverpool signed Stuttgart midfielder Wataru Endo as they didn’t have a holding midfielder this season.

“We hope to keep all of our vital players, but we’ve never tied players down. If all parties are satisfied, a departure could happen.”
