Italian clubs Napoli and AS Roma are also claimed to be interested in securing the services of the 25-year-old winger.
Thauvin is a very good winger who has been playing well for French club Marseille.
The France international has scored seven goals and provided two assists in nine Ligue 1 starts for Marseille so far this season, according to WhoScored.
The winger has scored one goal and provided one assist in two Europa League appearances for OM so far this campaign, according to WhoScored.
During the 2017-18 season, Thauvin scored 22 goals and provided 11 assists in 35 Ligue 1 matches, according to WhoScored.
Newcastle United spell
Thauvin struggled during his time in England, as the France international failed to make a huge impact during his time at Newcastle.
The winger joined Newcastle from Marseille in the summer of 2015 for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £12 million.
The 25-year-old struggled to make an impact at St. James’ Park, and after a loan spell at Marseille, moved to the French club on a permanent contract in the summer of 2017.
According to the CIES Football Observatory, Thauvin’s value is now €76.8 million (£67.1m).
