Everton and Newcastle United are among the Premier League clubs who have been linked with Guingamp striker Marcus Thuram.

Marcus Thuram is available for a bargain £7 million after his Guingamp side were relegated from Ligue 1 last season, according to Sport Bild – which should pique the interest of several Premier League clubs.

The 21-year-old forward is no longer merely the son of legendary French defender Lillian Thuram. The Parma-born youngster established himself as one of the most exciting forwards in Europe in 2018/19, scoring 13 goals in all competitions including a last-gasp penalty away at Paris Saint-Germain in the Coupe de la Ligue.

 

TEAMtalk claimed earlier in the year that a number of English-based outfits, such as Newcastle United, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Everton, had shown an interest in Thuram Jr.

Newcastle and Everton, in particular, are both crying out for added options in attack. The Magpies have bid farewell to star man and top scorer Salomon Rondon, who has returned to West Brom at the end of his loan spell, while The Toffees still haven’t adequately replaced the goals of Romelu Lukaku.

So the fact that Thuram is available for just £7 million after Guingamp’s relegation, as reported by Bild, should not go unnoticed.

In today’s market, £7 million is a drop in the ocean for a striker with such vast potential.
