German publication Bild have claimed that Borussia Monchengladbach are willing to sell Tottenham target Marcus Thuram for a cut-price fee in January to avoid losing him for free in the summer.

Thuram has been one of the standout attackers in the Bundesliga during the first part of the campaign, with the Frenchman having amassed 13 goals across all competitions in 17 matches so far (Transfermarkt).

90 min reported a couple of days ago that Spurs want to add a forward to their squad in January and have identified the Gladbach star as a potential target.

The report claimed that the North London club sent scouts to Germany last week to watch the forward in Gladbach’s clash against Borussia Dortmund.

It was alleged that the 26-year-old is also of interest to Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta’s men said to be ‘admirers’ of the player.

If Bild’s latest update is to be believed, Gladbach are ready to cash in on Thuram when the transfer window reopens in January since the forward’s contract runs out at the end of the season.

The publication states that Daniel Farke’s side will demand a fee of €10m (£8.7m) for the French international.

A player of Thuram’s quality would be an absolute steal for the reported price and so, I expect several clubs to explore a move for the forward in January. The Gladbach star will fit well into Conte’s system, given that he can play across the front three.
