Liverpool have now held a conversation with OGC Nice midfielder Khephren Thuram over a potential transfer deal, according to FootballTransfers.com.
As per the reports The Reds have suffered a serious blow as Atalanta have refused to sell their star midfielder Teun Koopmeiners this month.
Now the Merseyside giants are considering other potential transfer deals in January as the Anfield recruitment continues.
Khephren Thuram to Liverpool
According to FootballTransfers.com, alongside Manu Kone of Borussia Monchengladbach, Liverpool have had conversations with the Nice youngster Thuram.
L’Equipe have suggested that the Ligue 1 outfit had set a £13M price tag for the youngster last summer.
The 21-year-old could be a nice fit for the Jurgen Klopp side. The 6ft 4 inches tall midfielder would add a strong presence in the midfield for the Reds. His physicality could be key as Klopp demands physicality in midfield.
His height could be useful in set pieces. His ability to commit tactical fouls and tackle at a crucial times is what the Reds are looking for. Thuram would perfectly slot in for the tired-looking Fabinho in the defensive midfielder position. Thus, it might help in winning the 50-50 balls in the middle of the park.
Thuram has a rich background. He is the son of France legend Lillian Thuram. The youngster’s brother, Marcus- Thuram plays for Borussia Monchengladbach who is also linked with a transfer to Anfield.
Thuram’s recent performance
For Nice this season, Thuram has played in every single Ligue1 and Europa Conference League fixture.
The Reds need a reliable player added to their ranks in the middle of the park, and at 21 years of age, it appears the Frenchman could be the perfect fit.
Liverpool’s other targets
Other than the Frenchman Liverpool are also interested in Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, Benfica wonder kid Enzo Fernandez and Wolves midfielder Mathus Nunes.
The English side are in desperate need to sign players in the center of the park. LFC are currently in the 6th position and are looking to regain their English dominance.
Will the Reds be able to get back in the top 4?
