Arsenal are eager to bolster their attack this summer and have already been handed a boost in their pursuit of a Bundesliga target.
After eyeing the player for some time now, the Gunners could be set to sign Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram in a cut-price deal.
The winger’s current contract is set to expire in 2023 and The Athletic have claimed that the German side are looking to offload Thuram at the end of the season rather than allowing him to leave for free next summer.
The report claims they have set an asking price of just £10-15 million for Thuram - a fee that could prove to be a steal with the player only 24 years old.
Despite struggling for goals this season, the France international has impressed in the Bundesliga and has also attracted interest from Chelsea and Tottenham.
At such a low price the Gunners will definitely be considering a move for Thuram, with the attacker undoubtedly able to improve a team that will soon see Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette’s contracts expire.
If the duo leave the Emirates Stadium this summer then Mikel Arteta could be left with a threadbare attack, boosted only by the excellent form of the likes of Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe.
Thuram would definitely have a challenge on his hands forcing any of Arsenal’s youngsters out of the starting line-up, however he would provide them with some much needed competition.
