Noel Whelan Claims Marcus Thuram was a valuable addition to Tottenham in January as he performed “beyond your expectations”.
Former Leeds United striker, specialized in football insidersuggesting the Frenchman’s move is relatively low-risk due to his contract situation.
according to 90 minutes (November 14), Tottenham Hotspur officials attended last week’s 25-year-old Monchengladbach striker Thuram’s game.
The France international is part of this month’s World Cup squad after scoring 13 goals in 17 appearances for the Bundesliga side this season.
Thuram’s contract will expire after the end of this season, so it is possible to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with foreign parties from January 1.
Son Heung-min, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski have all been plagued by injuries this season – while Harry Kane has struggled with fatigue.
When asked if Thuram would be willing to play as an effective fifth-choice striker, Whelan told football insiderEvan Kingsbury: “He probably thinks he’s good enough, no way.
“The club will look at Harry Kane’s injury, Harry Kane’s fatigue.
“He has a lot of games to play and he gives 100 per cent in every game.
“Thuram is probably a guy who comes in and gets more game time than you expect.
“You can never have enough forwards, especially number nines and strikers.
“If it’s a cheap deal because he’s about to get a free contract, there’s not much risk.
“He has a long life to live, Thuram is only 25 years old.”
