About Football Express India - Indian Super League - I-League

Khephren Thuram is a 23 years old French midfielder, plays for the French club OGC Nice. He has been linked to many clubs lately which are mostly Italian clubs and interesting other club is Liverpool. There are many reports that are reporting on this transfer and they are reporting that he might be wanting to joining among the Italian club and those reports are “strong” as well.

Liverpool changed their head coach to Arne slot and it was announced few weeks ago as former manager Juregen Klopp decided to leave the club. They are well acknowledged that they do need many improvements in certain areas like Midfield, Wings and defense as well.

Liverpool add Khephren Thuram to their target list this summer

They have been linked to different high profilic players like Joshua Kimmich, Khvicha Kvartskhelia, Antony Gordon and Leny Yoro. This shows that Arne has started working from day one it self and they are serious about the transfer window. Also there were reports that Liverpool Football Club owners Fenway Sports Group have allocated big transfer budget to the new Liverpool gaffer and there is big freedom in dutchman’s hand to improve the squad with this budget.

The Frenchman’s fellow national team mate and Liverpool’s Important Centre Half Ibrahima Konate has openly talked about him joining Liverpool he said:

“I would be very happy for him to come to Liverpool. I would take him under my wing and do everything I could to help him progress and become the best. Khephren is like my little brother. He’s someone I saw growing up. I was with his big brother in the training centre, but I saw him grow. Saw him perform and progress at a level… it was incredible. Even when he came to the France team for his first selection. I saw him at the training, and I was really surprised by his size and technical ease.”

Will the Frenchman go to Anfield?

According to reports Konate is set to be upset about his optimism to play with his good friend Khephren. The reports say the Frenchman is set to join Italian Giants Juventus for 20 – 25 million Euros. Juventus have not been performing on their standards from last couple of years and in order to find them selves at the top of Italy again they have also been making changes and upgrade in their club and the squad.

They also know midfield is essential position to improve upon in their tactics and the squad and they believe the 22 years old fits right in the squad planning and the budget itself.

Newcastle United are also in race to sign Thuram as they understand that Bruno Guimaraes may leave. There is also uncertainty in Tonali’s case now it is up to the club and their need for the player.

This suggests that the clubs do believe in the player, and they are ready to invest in him. Liverpool and the fans are not also satisfied with the current midfield despite of having to add World class midfield signings like MacAlister and Dominik Szobozslai. Also, Thiago’s departure also creates desperation in the terms of signing Khephren Thuram
