Khephren Thuram, a midfielder for OGC Nice and a French international, has recently been linked to Liverpool, and the most recent reports are very encouraging.
Fabrizio Romano, a renowned journalist, revealed yesterday that the Reds have scheduled negotiations to sign the Les Bleus midfielder during the summer transfer window.
Today, the Financial Times (FT) exclusively disclosed that Liverpool had verbally agreed to a contract to sign Thuram in order to further enhance the situation in the middle of the park.
The central midfielder Mac Allister is an attack-minded player who enjoys moving into the penalty area to either score or contribute to goals.
Thuram, on the other hand, is a playbreaker by nature. When under pressure, he maintains composure on the ball, likes to press and tackle to win the ball back.
The 22-year-old has nevertheless shown to be successful in the more advanced central midfield position and was able to directly contribute to ten goals in the recently finished campaign.
The news source mentioned that Liverpool and Nice are currently in negotiations to determine the transfer fee.
Newcastle United is reportedly interested in buying the prized player from the Ligue 1 team, who could demand a price of close to £51.5m (60 million euros).
Because of their wealthy owners, the Magpies can guarantee him a spot in the Champions League for the upcoming season.
The player, who had been insisting on going to Anfield, has now signed a contract with Liverpool.
