Tottenham is in advance talks to sign Marcus Thuram even though they haven’t named a manager yet, according to RMC Sports.
The Lilywhites remain managerless, but reports indicate they are closing in on naming a replacement for Jose Mourinho.
Nevertheless, Spurs don’t want to be left behind by other teams in the transfer market and Fabio Paratici is likely to help them get their first transfer business done soon.
Thuram has remained one of the impressive young strikers in Germany where he stars for Borussia Monchengladbach.
The German side played in the Champions League last season and reached the knockout stage even though they were in the same group as Real Madrid and Inter Milan.
He contributed 8 goals and 7 assists in 29 league games for the club.
He plays as a striker or on the left side of the attack and shows exceptional ability when he plays in both positions.
Spurs are facing an important summer with several uncertainties around them.
They could lose Harry Kane this summer, but the signing of Thuram isn’t as a replacement for the England captain.
They had Carlos Vinicius on loan from Benfica last season, but the Brazilian didn’t impress and Thuram will more likely be a replacement for him as a backup to Kane.
