Marcus Thuram would have already given his answer to the leaders of OM, concerning his possible arrival. The Blues striker would like to stay in the Bundesliga or join Italy in the coming seasons. Inter Milan are currently holding the rope to secure his signature.
According to information collected by Tuttosport, OM was on the list of clubs interested in Marcus Thuram. Igor Tudor would imagine him taking a position on the front of his attack, where he has faced several departures in recent months. Arek Milik and Cédric Bakambu were indeed not replaced. As for Luis Suarez, he seems to be struggling to adapt to Ligue 1. Paid 10 million euros last summer, the Colombian has scored only 3 goals in 11 appearances in all competitions.
Inter Milan on pole to secure his signature
But according to The Gazzetta dello Sport, the French international should not return to Ligue 1 in the coming months. The son of Lilian Thuram would not intend to return to France and would favor the Bundesliga or Italy, for his next destination. At the end of the contract in June 2023, the player would have several touches in Germany. But it is Inter Milan who could win the bet. The striker would be attached to the transalpine country, in which he was born: the resident of Borussia Mönchengladbach was born during the passage of his father in Parma, in 1997.
This season, Marcus Thuram has scored 13 goals in 17 appearances in all competitions. The French international (4 caps) also delivered 4 assists. OM will therefore have to opt for other solutions to compensate for the attacking difficulties of Igor Tudor’s team. In recent days, the Marseille club has been associated with Ludovic Blas (Nantes) and Enzo Le Fée (Lorient), who are playing a notch lower. Their file seems more linked to the injury of Amine Harit than to the desire to replace Arek Milik or Cédric Bakambu.
