  • Possible transfer blow for Liverpool

WHAT HAPPENED? The Nice midfielder is a wanted man this summer, with Foot Mercato reporting that Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel has made Thuram his transfer priority. They claim the German giants have made contact with the player's entourage, although that is refuted by Sky Sports Germany.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Either way, it complicates the situation for Liverpool, who were previously thought to be leading the race for Thuram. The 22-year-old is highly regarded, having starred for Nice since joining as a teenager from Monaco in 2019.

AND WHAT'S MORE: The player is the son of legendary France defender Lilian and brother of forward Marcus, making his own breakthrough into the French international setup in March, winning his first cap. He can play in defensive midfield or in a box-to-box role.
