Liverpool is interested in acquiring OGC Nice midfielder Khephren Thuram at the conclusion of the season. According to Liverpool Echo, the representatives of the talented 22-year-old French midfielder have already held discussions with Reds.

The outcome of these talks will determine whether the club proceeds with a formal offer in the upcoming weeks. As Liverpool seeks to strengthen their central midfield, their focus has extended beyond Thuram. They have also been linked with players like Manu Kone and Alexis Mac Allister. Thuram, a pivotal figure for Nice, carries a significant valuation exceeding €40 million. To secure his services, Liverpool will need to present a substantial offer, while also facing competition from Paris Saint-Germain.

While speaking at the UNFP awards, Thuram expressed his desire to continue growing with Nice and hinted that he is not planning a move this summer.

I want to progress, go on the field, have fun,

For now, I’m in Nice. It’s going very well. I really like the club, so I still see myself in Nice. I am very well in Nice.

There are noises, I hear, but I’m happy in Nice. I hope to grow with this club. I would like him [manager Didier Digard] to stay because he brought a lot to this group when it was in a difficult period.

I don’t know if I tell him enough but he’s someone I can never thank enough. He helped me a lot in difficult times in my young career. We worked a lot together. I wish him only happiness, in Nice, or elsewhere.
