Tottenham have previously been linked with a move for Borussia Monchengladbach winger Marcus Thuram and in midweek he highlighted why he’d be a quality purchase for Spurs.
The son of France World Cup-winning defender, Lillian, he suffered relegation during 2018/19 whilst playing for Ligue 1 outfit Guingamp.
It was reported by The Sun in January 2019 that Tottenham, along with Manchester United and Arsenal, had scouted Thuram.
Instead, he signed for Monchengladbach for just £10.7 million and given his potential it looks a mistake on Spurs’ part.
Last season the 23-year-old scored 14 goals and registered nine assists as Monchengladbach finished fourth in the Bundesliga.
He was an integral part of the team, showcasing his ability to play on either flank or through the middle.
Tottenham signed well in the summer. Gareth Bale, Carlos Vinicius and Pierre Emile-Hojbjerg were all attractive additions to the squad.
Jose Mourinho will crave more though and talented players will always be sought by the reputable boss.
Thuram made his debut for France in a shock 2-0 defeat against Finland and also featured in games against Portugal and Sweden.
Against the Swedes he showcased his talent, producing some unbelievable trickery to set up Olivier Giroud to score.
Tottenham have a relatively young squad and Thuram would compliment it just nicely.
Monchengladbach will naturally value him extremely highly given his form since arriving in Germany.
Mourinho being at Tottenham and their ambitions for the future will make Tottenham an attractive pull for Thuram.
He is clearly enjoying his football in Germany but it seems only natural he’ll move onto bigger things.
Tottenham should look to pounce on Thuram before Europe’s big hitters emerge as contenders – and ultimately his stock rises even further.
