Liverpool are reportedly keen on Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram.
Liverpool have a vaunted front three in Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, but they need some support.
Divock Origi isn’t quite of the quality to be a game-changing attacker, so Jurgen Klopp may be keen to add a versatile attacker to his front line this summer.
A player who can operate both out wide and up front could be ideal, with Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica one player touted to fill that role.
Yet now, Express in Germany claim that Liverpool not only want Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria, but also teammate Marcus Thuram.
It’s stated that Thuram would likely go for €50million (£44million), and it could be a €100million (£88million) double deal for him and Zakaria this summer.
Thuram, 22, joined Gladbach from Guingamp last summer in a deal worth just €12million (£10.5million), and he has been an absolute bargain so far.
Thuram has hit 10 goals and nine assists, whilst his huge 6ft 4in frame coupled with his pace and skill makes him a dangerous attacker whether deployed out wide or down the middle.
Now, Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to suggest that they would be ‘all over’ a move for Thuram, believing a deal would be a ‘Michael Edwards masterclass’ and that he would be a great option in attack.
Others think Liverpool should be aiming higher and focusing on Timo Werner and Kai Havertz if they’re to really progress from where they are right now.
Yes but Werner for me has to be first choice in the foward department personally I don’t think we need Zakaria we have Werner hendo etc— anfield legend (@DarraghMcdonog1) April 3, 2020
Can play anywhere in the front 3. And finally we’ll have French sauce! Michael Edwards masterclass mashallah— Rhys (@FtblRhys) April 3, 2020
If we don’t get Werner we need both Thuram and Rashica https://t.co/a4Lgny67Gd— Joga Bonito (@JogaAdamBonito) April 4, 2020
Myron boadu would be my choice but I seen us linked with Marcus thuram he’d be interesting since he’s tall could be good for us— Ronan (@Ronan99_LFC) April 4, 2020
Zakaria looks to be an really good young option but idk bout thuram— Hmmmm (@Fakename_YNWA) April 4, 2020
Thuram as a fourth attacker, alternative to Werner and would cost around the same amount, rapid and an elite creator up top— thomas (@lfcctom) April 3, 2020
As current European champions and borderline Premier League Champions.. Marcus Thuram? Should be launching an all out raid for Havertz and Werner. Zakaria looks interesting to say the least.

A front four of Mane, Salah, Firmino and Thuram would be mad— thomas (@lfcctom) April 3, 2020
