Sportitalia: Moncada alerted by chance to sign OGC Nice star for €20m

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are continuing to look into options that could reinforce the midfield department and Khéphren Thuram is one of the names that is attracting their interest, a report claims.

According to the latest from Francesco Letizia in his column for Sporitalia, Geoffrey Moncada has set his sights on Thuram and has been made aware that he could leave OGC Nice in a cut-price deal this summer.

Regardless of who will be the next head coach, the journalist states that Milan are looking for a new defensive midfielder because the feeling is that neither Franck Kessie nor Sandro Tonali have been replaced since they left in 2022 and 2023 respectively.

The Thuram ‘opportunity’ should be highlighted, Letizia claims. Marcus’ brother is leaving Nice and he will not cost any more than €20m, at least according to sources in France.

The technical director Geoffrey Moncada likes him and believes that Khephren has ‘everything to represent the missing piece’ in a department in which there might be more than one change.

The 23-year-old was actually born in Reggio Emilia given his father Lilian was still based in Italy at the time, and he joined Nice from Monaco in 2019. He has made 28 appearances this season, with three goals and three assists.

  1. Get him! For a 20 mil would be a steal, and we could finally play 4-3-3 with a strong mildfield Tijjani- Bennacer-Thuram

  2. For 20 Mil i don’t think you can go wrong for this guy. His build is crazy very strong will win many arial duals and is decent on the ball get him ASAP

  3. 20 would be a good price but we already have a shïtload of midfielders of his profile.. but i love the idea of a milan derby and thuram bros on opposite sides

    1. I’m not sure we have any midfielders of his profile, but agreed that it would be fun to have the two brothers on opposite sides of the derby. I don’t think that’s happened since the Baresi brothers.

  4. He would add backbone and height to our midfield. Something we have been lacking since Kessie left. For that fee sign him.

  5. For 20 mil why not. You can get that back from him if it doesn’t work out. Mats Wieffer is an interesting option as well.

  6. Ummm….while he would be great signing for us…I highly doubt he goes for only 20M. Many teams including in the EPL want him – so 20M seems like a fantasy. Plus I am sure even if he only cost 20M we would ask for a discount and of course will lose him to another club, like I don’t know maybe Inter?? LOL. Embarrassing

    1. I’m like 20m? Only? Then why haven’t other teams lined up for the obvious 🤷‍♂️
      I’m still waiting for our scout to find out Fabinho tho
