It’s cheaper than ‘Son-Ke’, but is it good? Tottenham looking for a ‘world class’ striker
The atmosphere is already forming a competitive landscape over German Bundesliga Borussia Mönchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram. On the 10th local time, British media HITC quoted Spain’s Sport and reported that “Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa of the English Premier League (EPL) are expected to face each other in the match for Thuram.”
It’s not just these two clubs that have their eyes on Thuram. In summary, in the Premier League, Arsenal, Newcastle United, French Ligue 1 Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) and Spanish La Liga Barcelona have also put Thuram on their summer recruitment promotion list.
Born in 1997 and 25 years old this year, Thuram has been active in Monchengladbach since the summer of 2019. He is of French descent and was born in Italy. Thuram’s father is Lilian Thuram, a legendary defender who played for the French national team. His birthplace of Parma, Italy is also related to his father. Lilian Thuram played for Parma Calcio from 1996 to 2001.
Thuram scored 13 goals and 4 assists in a total of 20 games, including 10 goals in 18 Bundesliga games this season. Wolfsburg’s Sporting Director Shafer, who faced Thuram in the match against Monchengladbach in October last year, praised Thuram, saying, “It deserves to be called a world-class striker.” In that match, Thuram showed off multiple goals. 토토사이트
The reason Thuram has emerged as a more attractive recruitment option is also because he will soon become a free agent (FA) player. The contract between Thuram and Monchengladbach is until this summer. The current weekly wage is also low at 82,000 pounds (KRW 126 million). It is known that Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Son Heung-min receive 200,000 pounds (300 million won) a week.
In fact, Thuram’s name didn’t come up very often in the January transfer window. Recently, Moenchengladbach’s sporting director Roland Birkus revealed in an interview on Monchengladbach’s official website that “there were no offers for Thuram during the winter transfer window.” He had a lot of bites, but nothing that led to actual negotiations, Birkus explained.
