With Alexis Mac Allister over the line, LIVERPOOL are reportedly closing in on a deal to sign OGC Nice midfielder Khephren Thuram.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp knows that his current side are not good enough to compete with Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and possibly Chelsea for that Premier League title next season.

He knows that he needs to add some more quality to the squad – some more depth and freshness – and that had les to rumours that the exciting Thuram is a man that the club are interested in.

The 22-year-old has enjoyed a breakout campaign in the south of France and earned a call-up to the senior national team as well as a place in the Ligue 1 Team of the Season.

And after they sealed the signing of Alexis Mac Allister – according to Football Transfers journalist Jacque Talbot, the Reds and Thuram have agreed to terms as his arrival at Anfield inches closer.

Negotiations between the Merseysiders and the Ligue 1 club are well underway as Jurgen Klopp looks to secure the Frenchman’s signature early in the transfer window.

Former Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey has already informed Klopp that Liverpool could be getting a player that is destined for the top of the game: “Khephren is another talented player here,” Ramsey said in February.

“I think he’s definitely got a big future ahead of him if he carries on the way he’s going at the minute. He’s very dangerous, very powerful, a very strong dribbler of the ball.

“Hopefully, he can keep progressing.

‘He’s another player that can go all the way to the top I feel. I enjoy playing alongside him in the middle of the park; I think we have a good balance in there.

‘Now it’s just about adding a few more goals to our games.”
