Transfer Battle? Juventus Joins PSG, Liverpool in Race to Sign Top Ligue 1 Midfielder

Paris Saint-Germain invested in their attack and defense this summer transfer window. However, the capital club could look to bolster their midfield as they’re reported in the race for OGC Nice’s Khephren Thuram.

The backline saw the additions of Lucas Hernandez and Milan Skriniar. Furthermore, the attack saw Gonçalo Ramos, Randal Kolo Muani, and Ousmane Dembélé. As for the midfield, Manuel Ugarte and Kang-in Lee came into the fold. 

However, in the center of the pitch, one could argue that PSG needs the imposing presence of a player like Thuram. On Thursday, 90min reported, citing sources, that Juventus has joined Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Thuram. 

According to the report, Thuram has been scouted by Juventus, PSG, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and Tottenham in the first few weeks of the 2023-24 season.

90min concludes that Juventus is most interested in Thuram among the six linked clubs because of Paul Pogba’s situation. Pogba was suspended from football after testing positive for high testosterone levels following Juve’s win over Udinese last month, per Italy’s anti-doping tribunal.
