Bundesliga player catches Liverpool attention as they look for avenues to improve upon
Liverpool is at the peak of their prime at the moment. Klopp’s men conquered at the biggest stage of club football last season by winning the UEFA Champions League. This season has been equally impressive with Liverpool perpetually having won the Premier League after a drought of 31 years. It looks like the side’s faith and confidence in the Klopp have paid off.
Many would say that the Liverpool side is next to perfect and does not require any additions. They have been a destructive force in the Premier League losing only 5 points in 28 games. But there is always room for improvement. There is also speculation of Sadio Mane leaving Liverpool to join Real Madrid. Should the Senegalese leave they would need someone to replace him.
Liverpool has been linked with various players like Werner and Sancho and Havertz. All 3 of these are deadly additions to the team and have the potential to be one of the greats. But in this article, we’ll introduce to a 4th player which Liverpool are scouting.
Marcus Thuram a prospect for Liverpool
Marcus Thuram joined Borussia Monchengladbach last summer from Ligue 1 side Guingamp. The 23-year-old has already adapted to life in Bundesliga and is growing his reputation as a lethal striker. His ball control and finishing is pretty impressive and has caught the eye of many European clubs.
Thuram has 6 goals and 8 assists in 25 appearances for Monchengladbach. Although the numbers aren’t staggering, his impact on the pitch is far more than what the numbers imply.
Liverpool has a reputation for identifying underrated talents and then let Klopp furnish them into stars. Thuram could be one of those. Werner and Sancho are on the transfer list for various clubs and we could witness a price war between clubs. Among all the confusion the Reds might drop their interest and turn to Thuram instead.
90 million swoop on the cards.
The Reds have been linked with a move for midfielder Denis Zakaria and striker Marcus Thuram. According to reports from Metro Liverpool are looking for a 90 million swoop for both players. Both of them have transfer values of around 45 million.
The director of German club Borussia Mönchengladbach has admitted the club may need to sell players in the summer. He stated to DeExpress “We have no risk of bankruptcy or the like but of course we also have to try to make up for the deficits of millions”.
This could work out in Liverpool’s favor. The club has no shortage of money to slash after a quiet transfer window last season. They are looking to capitalize on that this season. But Liverpool does face competition as Bayern Munich is also eyeing Thuram. Bayern is interested in a move for the striker as Lewandowski replacement. According to DeExpress Manchester United are neck to neck with Liverpool in the race to sign Zakaria.
