Ankit is a 24-year-old, aspiring to have his voice heard through what he writes. Charismatic and frankly moral, adhering to his principles and beliefs. Out to search for a purpose in life and yet to settle on that matter.

According to a report from Liverpool Echo, Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate has urged his France teammate to switch to the Anfield Club this summer. In a recent statement, the defender expressed his contentment with the idea of Thuram joining Liverpool. He mentioned his willingness to mentor and provide full support in his development, ensuring he achieves his desired potential.

Khephren is like my little brother; he’s someone I saw growing up. I was with his big brother [Marcus] in the training centre, but I saw him grow.

“I saw him perform and progress at a level… It was incredible. Even when he came to the France team for his first selection. I saw him at the training, and I was really surprised by his size and his technical ease.”

Thuram’s Impressive Performance in French Football Last Season

Thuram had a remarkable season in Ligue 1, and he deserves immense credit for delivering a series of impactful performances at the heart of Nice’s midfield. The 22-year-old showcased his skills by scoring a couple of goals and providing eight assists in 48 matches across various competitions for the French club last season.

Thuram displayed his versatility by making significant defensive and offensive contributions, as reflected in his average of 1.5 tackles, 1.1 interceptions, 0.9 clearances, 1.1 shots, 1.0 key passes, and 1.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in Ligue 1. Additionally, he exhibited proficiency in distributing the ball from midfield, completing 86.9% of his attempted passes in top-flight football, according to stats from whoscored.

It is important to note that Thuram remains under contract with the French club until the summer of 2025. Hence, if Liverpool aims to secure the services of this talented French player in the upcoming transfer window, they will need to present a compelling offer.

Should Liverpool Boss Jurgen Klopp Move In For Him This Summer?

Thuram’s diverse skill set allows him to excel in various aspects of midfield play. He exhibits strong tackling ability, regularly making crucial interceptions for his team. He isn’t hesitant to put his foot through the ball when necessary. Additionally, Thuram showcases his attacking prowess by contributing both goals and assists.

Therefore, Thuram’s addition to Liverpool’s midfield would undoubtedly elevate its quality. His abilities make him a suitable match for Jurgen Klopp’s expert guidance at Anfield.

Overall, Thuram would be a valuable asset for the Merseyside club, provided he can smoothly adapt to the demands of the Premier League.
