Earlier in the season, Liverpool were said to be interested in OGC Nice’s Khéphren Thuram but no deal took shape in January.

Liverpool continue to be an interested party. That’s according to Tuttosport, who mention the Reds when discussing Juventus’ desire to sign him.

Juventus technical director Cristiano Giuntoli won’t have an unlimited budget to reshape the squad next season, and the Liverpool target continues to be on his list.

In fact, the report states the 23-year-old is one of the favourite targets for the Turin club due to his qualities and age.

It’s claimed Juve continue to chase him even though the competition from Liverpool and Barcelona ‘seems ruthless’.

The Ligue 1 side are currently fifth in the table and are five points behind Lille, who are in the fourth spot. The top three teams will qualify for the Champions League and the fourth placed team will make it to the qualifiers.

In short, Nice risk missing out on the Champions League next season and Tuttosport state that ‘could favour’ the France international’s exit.

Thuram’s deal lasts until 2025 and Liverpool have better financial resources than both Juve and Barca to sign him.
