AC Milan join race to sign Marcus Thuram

AC Milan have joined the race to sign Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram on a free transfer, according to Calciomercato.

Thuram’s contract expires at the end of this month, but his next destination remains anyone’s guess, with the player yet to sign a pre-contract agreement with any club.

The 25-year-old is one of the most sought-after figures in the free transfer market and has been linked with a plethora of clubs, but he is reportedly keen to join Paris Saint-Germain.

The French giants are looking for a new striker to lead the line and Thuram is a key target, with reports suggesting they have opened talks with the player’s representatives.

However, Milan have entered the fray looking to snap up the France international amid their search for a new striker to support the ageing Olivier Giroud.

Thuram has enjoyed the most prolific campaign of his career, bagging 16 goals and seven assists in 32 appearances, and those impressive numbers will only increase the demand for his signature.

Milan and PSG are not the only clubs vying for Thuram’s services, but the ultimate decision rests with the player who should have his pick of the bunch this summer.

Milan have several other names on their shortlist, including West Ham United’s Gianluca Scamacca, Atletico Madrid’s Alvaro Morata, Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino.

The Rossoneri have also reignited interest in RB Salzburg striker Noah Okafor who is poised to exit the Austrian outfit this summer. 

Salzburg are keen to offload the 23-year-old forward to avoid losing a player of his calibre on a free transfer, with his contract set to expire at the end of next season.

Milan have re-established contact with Okafor’s entourage over the possibility of a transfer, with Salzburg likely to demand around €25 million for the striker.
