Liverpool have reportedly entered into negotiations with Ligue 1 side Nice to sign talented midfielder Khephren Thuram. 

As per a report by TuttoJuve, Liverpool is currently in talks with French club, Nice, to secure Khephren Thuram. The midfielder is said to be attracting interest from other English clubs too, and his price tag for this summer is estimated to be around €30 million.

Thiago Alcantara’s departure from the club due to the expiration of his contract means Liverpool must find a suitable replacement. While the 22-year-old may not currently match Alcantara’s level, he possesses exceptional talent and promising prospects, suggesting Liverpool could groom him into a top player in the years ahead.

Moreover, the reported €30 million valuation seems fair for a player of his potential. If the French midfielder quickly adapts to English football, he could prove to be a significant bargain at that price.

The prospect of playing for Liverpool is likely appealing to the 22-year-old, and it remains uncertain whether the Reds can successfully finalize the deal. Liverpool is resolute in their intention to secure the player’s signature this summer.

Given Liverpool’s financial resources, they are capable of meeting the reported asking price. Whether they proceed with a concrete offer following negotiations in the coming weeks remains to be seen.

It’s widely acknowledged that Liverpool requires reinforcements in central midfield, and Thuram has the potential to become a pivotal player for them with proper guidance. Possessing qualities that contribute both defensively and creatively, Thuram could fill a valuable role for Liverpool in the heart of midfield.
