Khephren Thuram transfer latest: Nice drop update for Arsenal, Man Utd and Liverpool

Khephren Thuram, France, 2023

The transfer status of Khephren Thuram has been clarified by Nice sporting director Florent Ghisolfi, with the midfielder linked to a string of Premier League clubs over the course of the last year.

Liverpool have been heavily associated with the France international midfielder, while Arsenal and Manchester United are also clubs linked to the 22-year-old.

He has been most recently linked to Man Utd as part of a blockbuster triple deal that will also see Bayern Munich pair Alphonso Davies and Joshua Kimmich move to the Old Trafford side.

Thuram, though, has experienced a more difficult campaign this time around, with L’Equipe posing the question to Ghisolfi about how Nice expect to maximise their revenue for a player perceived to have a big future in the game.

“The subject is not on his value, but how we can exploit his infinite potential with us,” Ghisolfi, who has been linked himself with a move to Liverpool in recent days, replied.

“At his age and with international football on his CV, he remains invaluable.

“For me, he’s not had a very average season and that’s not the opinion of the people watching him.

“His season has been tarnished by a lack of statistics and his injury, but the content of his matches has been good.”

Thuram’s value bouncing back

Thuram’s difficult campaign has been reflected in a drop in his Estimated Transfer Value (ETV).

The former Monaco midfielder was worth up to €27 million last summer, when there was talk of a move in the region of €40m to Liverpool. This figure has since dropped back to €19m but is climbing again after the youngster missed more than a month because of a knee injury.

Thuram has yet to record a goal or an assist this season, which is a drop off compared to the 2022/23 campaign, in which he recorded two goals and delivered eight assists.
