Marcus Thuram is the forward that Bayern are reportedly looking at to bolster their attacking options.
According to multiple reports emanating from England, Bayern Munich will look to sign Borussia Mönchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram.
The France international joined Borussia Mönchengladbach from Guingamp for a fee in the region of 9 million euros in July 2019. His contract expires in the summer of 2023.
In 13 appearances this season, Thuram has managed to score 11 goals and contributed with 3 assists.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 25-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
The Borussia Mönchengladbach forward has also represented the France at various youth levels before going on to secure 4 senior caps for his country thus far.
The forward has just 8 months remaining on his contract and Borussia Mönchengladbach may consider a deal in this transfer window to avoid losing him for nothing next summer.
Adding a forward remains Bayern’s top priority this winter and Julian Nagelsmann will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
The France international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of forward Nagelsmann wants to target in the winter transfer window.
Bayern are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Guingamp man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “The Bundesliga champions are eager to speed up the transfer process to sign a new striker, with Kane long-viewed as Bayern’s number one option in the 2023 summer transfer window. However, Thuram’s contract situation at Borussia Monchengladbach has made the forward a much more attractive option. As well as being an overall cheaper transfer, Thuram’s contract with Gladbach is due to expire in 2023, with the striker set to leave the Bundesliga side next year. And for Bayern, the 25-year-old could be their short-term solution for their attacker problems.”
