As per HITC, Manchester United are among the clubs eyeing OGC Nice midfielder Khephren Thuram and are looking to sign him at the end of the season.

According to the report, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are all in the mix, with United keenly following the 23-year-old Frenchman.

He has established himself as a key player for the French outfit, and it remains to be seen whether they are prepared to sanction his departure this summer.

Manchester United will be in the market for a midfielder of his profile as ten hag’s options are dwindling.

Casemiro seems to be on his last legs and age is catching up with the once best defensive mid in the world, and the situation with Christian Eriksen is still uncertain.

It has also been rumoured that United are willing to cash in on top scorer Scott McTominay so come the summer, ten Hag may only have Bruno Fernandes and young Kobbie Mainoo as the only recognized senior midfielders.

As such, United will certainly be in the market for a midfielder of Thuram’s quality and profile. He will add physicality, defensive cover and technical attributes in the middle of the park.

Thuram is capable of operating as the central midfielder as well as a box to box midfielder. The Frenchman certainly has the physical and technical attributes to do well in English football, and a move to Manchester United will be an exciting opportunity for him.

It will be interesting to see if the Red Devils can secure an agreement with the French outfit and fend off the competition from their Premier League rivals.

United may be favoured considering the French outfit OGC Nice is also owned by Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS.
