PSG battling Milan clubs for Marcus Thuram, Wilfried Zaha also on the list

Paris Saint-Germain are still in the frame for French free agent Marcus Thuram, according to a report from RMC Sport.

Managerial candidate Julian Nagelsmann reportedly wanted Thuram as one of his top targets, but talks with the German boss collapsed, casting doubt over the move.

PSG, who are set to appoint Luis Enrique as their new head manager, are monitoring Thuram and see him as an ideal signing to strengthen the forward line.

However, Serie A giants AC Milan and Inter Milan are also chasing Thuram.

The Rossoneri have been pursuing the 25-year-old and have tabled an offer worth €5 million per season.

Milan are ready to offer him a central role at the club. The club’s French contingent – Theo Hernandez, Olivier Giroud and Mike Maignan – are trying to convince Thuram to move to the San Siro.

Inter have lined up Thuram as a potential replacement for Edin Dzeko, who is reportedly close to joining Fenerbahce.

RB Leipzig have reportedly entered the race for the former Gladbach star as the Bundesliga giants seek a replacement for Christopher Nkunku, who has completed his move to Chelsea.

PSG keeping tabs on Wilfried Zaha, but the Crystal Palace forward is behind Thuram on their wishlist.

The Ivory Coast international’s contract at Selhurst Park expires at the end of this month, and he has rejected a proposal from Al Nassr with the motive of staying in Europe.

Les Parisiens have all but secured the deals of Manuel Ugarte from Sporting CP, Benfica’s Cher Ndour, Mallorca star Lee Kang-in and Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio.

Milan Skriniar is also poised to move to Parc des Princes on a free transfer from Inter, while the Ligue 1 giants view Bernardo Silva and Victor Osimhen as marquee signings.
