The latest reports suggest that Newcastle United want to bolster their midfield, and Khepren Thuram is apparently a target for the Premier League club.

According to The Telegraph, the French midfielder is a “relatively new name” on their list. He “would fit the model” of what they want to sign – promising young players.

Thuram is 22 years old and is currently playing for Ligue 1 club Nice. He is a key player for the club and has also attracted interest from Liverpool as well as Newcastle.

Indeed, The Independent previously claimed that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp sees the Frenchman as an ideal solution to their midfield problems.

The Telegraph report suggested that not every signing will go straight into the Newcastle first-team when they arrive. They will also add competition and cover.

The midfielder, who reportedly has a price tag of £53million, will no doubt continue to attract interest until he finds a new club.

Nice will be in no hurry to sell Thuram. This is due to the fact that his contract doesn’t expire until June 2025.

Despite this, the Frenchman may force a move as he looks to play for a Champions League side over a side in mid table.

Newcastle are really looking to strengthen their squad. This is so that they can compete in Europe and also in all domestic competitions next season.

The “fantastic” midfielder would be a great option for the Magpies. The player is the son of legendary footballer Lilian Thuram. The defender played for both Juventus and Barcelona.

Interestingly, Newcastle have also been linked with signing Marcus Thuram. The attacking player is the brother of Khephren Thuram. We could see a family reunion at St.James’ Park.

This will be a very exciting transfer window for Newcastle United. They have gone for battling relegation to competing with some big teams in Europe for signings.


‘It can happen’ – Dutch star opens door to Liverpool or Man United move this summer

It’s been an intriguing season for both Liverpool and Man United in 2022/23, though it’s reasonably clear that both Premier League giants will need to strengthen their squads during the summer.

There are various areas of both squads that need to be addressed, with the Red Devils arguably looking for a replacement for Harry Maguire as a matter of priority.

To that end, news that Ajax star, Jurrien Timber, has all but issued a come-and-get-me plea, will be music to the ears of former manager of the club and now Man United chief, Erik ten Hag.

Jurgen Klopp will likely be keeping a watching brief on developments too, given that Vandaag Inside note via Dutch TV show Veronica Inside that Timber’s girlfriend is already house hunting in Liverpool.

Jurrien Timber in action for Ajax

“For me it is the same situation as last season. If I say: I’m leaving, it has to fit,” Timber said to Ziggy Sport, quoted by Voetbal Primeur.

“Playing style is important, playing minutes… Participating in the prizes is also important. My favorite country? I dare not say that.

“That’s why I’m doing the same as last season. The chance is there, it can happen, but I’m also good here. I’m still young and everything suits me here. I’m going to take a look.”

Given that the player can also operate at right-back, he presents an interesting proposition for either team.

From a Liverpool perspective, his hire would allow Trent Alexander-Arnold to play in the midfield role that he’s been excelling in of late.

It would also see him line up alongside countryman, Virgil van Dijk, which could well be a potential ace that the Anfield outfit hold over their north east rivals.

That said, ten Hag’s own background in the Dutch league and subsequent move to Old Trafford could swing things in United’s favour.
