Liverpool have opened talks with the representatives of Khephren Thuram, who is on the radar of multiple English clubs.

According to 90min, Liverpool are keen on having Khephren Thuram in their ranks ahead of next season. The Merseyside club have struggled in the ongoing season because of an inconsistent midfield. And, they are looking to land two to three midfielders in the upcoming transfer window. The youngster is also a target for Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur, among others.

The 22-year-old has gone from strength to strength of late. He has been in sensational form for over 12 months. And his performances have attracted a lot of attention from across Europe. Didier Deschamps rewarded his performances with his first-ever cap for the France senior team in March.

Thuram, who came through the ranks at AS Monaco before joining Nice, has been a standout performer in the 2022/23 season. The 22-year-old defensive midfielder has ten goal contributions in his 48 outings with almost 3,800 minutes to his name. His impressive performances have caught the eyes of Liverpool.

The Reds have confirmed the departure of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita whose contracts at the club end in the summer. With three key midfielders set to leave, Liverpool need multiple signings. As per reports, they are close to completing the signing of Alexis Mac Allister.

But, the Reds are not the only club keen on having the 22-year-old defensive midfielder. Even Tottenham and Newcastle United are in the race for his signature. The two clubs have been scouting him for a while now and could push for his services in the summer. Spurs lack the needed depth in the centre of the park, and Thuram’s arrival will surely bolster their squad.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United have made it to the UEFA Champions League, and they will have to reinforce their squad further to be competitive in both the UCL and Premier League. Signing the French international will surely give them a great base in the centre of the park.
