Tottenham Hotspur are aggressively bolstering their assault in anticipation of Harry Kane’s pending exit.
Despite being without a manager at the moment, the North London club are allegedly interested in acquiring French striker Marcus Thuram from Borussia Monchengladbach this summer in order to boost their offensive options.
The Frenchman, who is valued at 31 million pounds by transfermarkt, scored eight goals and added seven assists in 29 Bundesliga games in 20/21, and at the age of 23, seems to be on the verge of entering the peak of his career.
It is unknown how much Gladbach would expect for its teenage attacker, but the German club’s absence of European action next season may potentially be a deciding factor.
Spurs’ offer is limited to the UEFA Conference League, Europe’s third division of football, but it is a step forward from his present situation.
Additionally, Borussia Monchengladbach’s management has changed, with Marco Rose leaving for Borussia Dortmund and being replaced by Adi Hutter. While it is unknown how this would influence Thuram, he may become a victim of regime transition.
Fabio Paratici, formerly of Juventus, is widely speculated to be due to take over as Tottenham’s Director of Football in the coming days.
Spurs have been without a manager since sacking Jose Mourinho in April, with caretaker Ryan Mason resigning at the season’s conclusion. The identity of their nominee remains unknown, despite the fact that an approach for Antonio Conte fell through last week.
As a consequence, any move for Thuram seems to be totally dependent on Paratici’s early efforts, which Spurs supporters will be keen to see continue.
