Khephren Thuram, who is a target for Liverpool, has been advised to continue progressing at his current club OGC Nice.
In light of the departures of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita, Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is eager to improve his midfield options for the upcoming season. Jorg Schmadtke, Liverpool’s new sporting director, is rumored to be collaborating closely with Klopp to try and oversee any incomings as quickly as possible before preseason training begins.
German Schmadtke was officially named after Julian Ward’s departure on Tuesday morning. He has been tasked with ensuring the Reds have a successful summer to position them for a strong start to the upcoming season.
After making clear his frustration with Liverpool, Fabio Carvalho has five transfer options.
Thuram has reportedly been identified as a top target for Liverpool, but the 22-year-old has reportedly been warned against moving to Anfield anytime soon.
Didier Digard, Thuram’s supervisor in Nice, praised Thuram’s work ethic but issued a warning about leaving the Allianz Riviera too soon.
The Nice manager told RMC Sport that Khephren was fantastic. He works very hard and pays close attention. He is at the training facility on rest days. He completes intense training sessions and quick recoveries for back-to-back games.
He applies himself while paying attention.
He can still do better and is in demand. He just eats up additional sessions and video analysis. Because he assumes a leadership position, he also provides advice to others. As a person, he is also becoming more aware of himself.
“He’s already a member of the France team, but I have no doubt that he’ll have a very successful career. But he must still have some distance to cover in Nice before he can advance further.
Thuram began his professional career at Monaco before relocating to Nice in 2019. Since then, he has become a fan favorite at the team in southern France, appearing in more than 100 games over the previous four seasons.
Due to Thuram’s inclusion in the Ligue 1 Team of the Year alongside superstars like Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain, the 2022–23 season has been by far his most fruitful.
In relation to Liverpool’s pursuit of the Frenchman, any deal is anticipated to be finalized after the Reds hope to have completed a £70 million transfer for Brighton star and Argentine World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister.
There seems to be a sense of urgency among the Anfield hierarchy with regard to their summer dealings after missing out on Champions League football due to finishing fifth this season.
