Milan Insert Nice Ace in Wish List for Their Midfield

Milan aren’t focusing all their efforts just on signing a new striker and have shortlisted Khéphren Thuram if they decided to invest in the midfield, which is already well-assorted. They had to soldier through a few injuries in the first half of the season. An extra man wouldn’t hurt, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The Frenchman has been a Nice stalwart since 2019. He made his France debut in the recent international window. He might be ready to jump to a big team next summer.

The Ligue 1 outfit should be open to negotiating for Thuram with Milan and other suitors since his contract runs out in 2025. There have been no hints about a possible extension so far. Despite that, his price tag is robust, roughly €40M.

The midfielder is expected to attract suitors from all over Europe. He was linked to Juventus in previous windows but he has always been pricey, and Nice are hard bargainers. The Rossoneri might have an unexpected ally in his brother Marcus, who stars for Inter. Living in the same city, albeit as rivals, could be an enticing proposition.

Our Take on Milan and Thuram

There’s nothing wrong in compounding a strength, but it’d come at a premium. While they have deep pockets, other roles are higher on their list of priorities. Signing another midfielder depends on what they’ll do with Yunus Musah, who’s been underwhelming, and Yacine Adli, who has been rising but is still a tad inconsistent.
