Juventus Take an Interest in Coveted Nice Midfielder

After missing out on some of their primary targets, Juventus have Khepren Thuram atop their wish list for the midfield. He’s very pricey and highly sought-after, but they have kept tabs on him for over a year. Liverpool and PSG are keen too, TuttoSport informs.

The Bianconeri touched base with Nice to explore the terms. The French side has shown interest in two of their outcasts, Luca Pellegrini and Koni De Winter. A proper negotiation has yet to start. It might after some exits.

Juventus have to cut down their midfield before onboarding Thuram or another option. AS Monaco are now leading the race for Denis Zakaria. Hans Nicolussi Caviglia and Enzo Barrenechea are likely to go out on loan. Fabio Miretti could do the same, but the brass will make the call later in the summer. Instead, it’d take €25M to lure Weston McKennie.

Moreover, the Old Lady is very uncertain about Paul Pogba, who will miss the first few matches due to lack of fitness. The Saudi threat hasn’t vanished either. The Bianconeri inquired about Thomas Partey, but Arsenal value him €40/45M. They had pursued Franck Kessié, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, and Davide Frattesi earlier in the window.

Our Take on Juventus and Thuram

He’d be a fantastic addition, but the logjam at the position has severely hindered them, and it doesn’t look like it will be solved anytime soon.
