Conditions set for Liverpool to complete €40M signing of 6ft4 destroyer


Liverpool are strongly placed to sign OGC Nice midfielder Khephren Thuram despite the allure of following in his father’s footsteps with a move to Juventus.


His father, Lillian Thuram, played 144 times for Juventus and after his brother, Marcus, moved to Inter Milan, Khephren could be tempted to move to Serie A as well.


Inter Milan are also interested but a report from Corriere dello Sport, however, suggests Liverpool have an advantage in that their finances are superior to that of Serie A clubs.


Nice want €40 million (£34.8m) to sell Thuram and now, Liverpool can finally move to sign the Frenchman after pursuing him in the summer without success.


The Reds reportedly reached an agreement with the 22-year-old over personal terms at Anfield so the foundations are already laid for another attempt at signing him.

Standing at six foot four, Thuram should not struggle with the physicality of the Premier League but it’s his technical traits that are so impressive.


He’s an out of the box option for Liverpool to sign in the defensive midfield department but he may not be available in January after choosing to stay at Nice for another season.


The midfielder said: “I wanted to continue to progress at Nice, and progress as a player at this club.


“Honestly, it made me happy to be linked to all these clubs left, right and centre. It shows I’m doing the right things but as I said, I knew I wanted to stay here.”
