Juventus jump for Thuram Junior

Juventus are interested in bringing Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram home to Turin, claim reports in France.

This would be a return to the city, because he essentially grew up there while his father Lilian played for Juve from 2001 to 2006.

Marcus was born in August 1997, a year after his Dad had joined Parma.

Thuram Junior is currently lighting up the Bundesliga with 14 goals and nine assists in 37 competitive games for Borussia Monchengladbach.

He only made the move from Guingamp last summer for €9m and that transfer value has already more than doubled to circa €25m.

There have already been links with Roma, Inter and Fiorentina, but according to le10sport.com, Juventus are currently the most active in pursuing the 22-year-old.

Thuram is primarily a centre-forward, but can play in any of the attacking trident roles, allowing him to fit perfectly into Maurizio Sarri’s tactics.
