OGC Nice Mercato : Gym responds to Khéphren Thuram’s suitors
Very sought after in Europe, especially in England, Khéphren Thuram obliges OGC Nice to respond. The Azurean club has set the rules for his transfer.
OGC Nice is having a promising season. While their Ligue 1 ranking (7th) is not necessarily what their supporters dreamt of, their adventure in the Europa Conference League gives the Aiglons a second wind. After finishing first in their group ahead of Partizan Belgrade, FC Cologne, and Slovacko, the Gym secured a victory over Sheriff Tiraspol in the round of 16.
In the quarter-final draw, OGCN will face FC Basel, an affordable opponent on paper. The club’s European journey could therefore continue for a while. The current coach of the Gym, Didier Digard, has played a role in the team’s recent form. Arriving as a firefighter in place of Lucien Favre last January, the former defensive midfielder has still not lost in the 13 matches he has directed.
OGC Nice sets the price for Khéphren Thuram.
Among the major players of the Gym this season is also Khéphren Thuram. The 22-year-old midfielder has started in 31 out of 36 possible matches with OGC Nice, and has impressed Didier Digard. With 2 goals and 4 decisive passes in Ligue 1, he was rewarded with his first call-up to the French national team. Alongside Jean-Clair Todibo, Khéphren Thuram represented the Azurean club in the match against the Netherlands (4-0).
His performances have been closely watched in Europe, especially in England where a club seems completely enamored. The RMC channel adds that Manchester United and Liverpool are also admirers of the player. In Germany, RB Leipzig is reportedly tracking him as well. Faced with all these solicitations, OGC Nice is being greedy for their gem: around 40 million euros are demanded for a transfer of Khéphren Thuram. It remains to be seen whether the suitors will be deterred by this amount.
