Liverpool have started the Premier league season in excellent fashion, after going through a personnel revamp to replace their aging squad. Subsequently a main concern in the previous transfer window was Liverpool’s midfield. Liverpool have now reportedly chosen Khephren Thuram as their transfer prodigy target.
Moreover with Klopp’s high intensity playing style, the OGC Nice man fits the bill perfectly. They have already secured midfield signings of Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Ryan Gravenberch. Along with Stefan Bajcetic, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliot as academy prodigies, Liverpool have a strong midfield. However, now Liverpool require a ball retrieving and dueling presence to compliment the creators and box to box runners.
Liverpool edge Juventus in Khephren Thuram pursuit
Liverpool have spent money lavishly in the past to acquire their transfer targets. However, after hefty spending in the summer transfer window, chances of going big in January are slim. Although, Liverpool have two excellent players lined up as potential number 6 signings. Manu Kone of Borussia Mönchengladbach and Khephren Thuram of OGC Nice. Both are excellent players on varying stages of their development.
Manu would be a cost effective option. However, Liverpool would find Khephren Thuram ideal for their system, instantly raising their quality. He could play as a double pivot or as a box crashing no.8. With Juventus also vying for the signature of these talents Liverpool have to be quick. However, due to lack of funds Juventus might be forced to back out such operations before next summer. This clears the path for Liverpool to secure the player.
Although, the operation would not be easy. As according to sports witness Nice price Thuram at a whooping 35 to 40 million euros. It would be now upto Liverpool to negotiate with Nice or take the gamble at the asking price. Liverpool securing Khephren Thuram would be very encouraging unless it deters them from getting a solid holding midfielder.
