In the middle of rumors surrounding several Gladbach's departures in summer, added to the already announced leave of Ginter, Marcus Thuram is reportedly in the plans of Sevilla for next season.




Sevilla's mastermind and sporting director Monchi is already planning ahead to next season, preparing the team for possible sales and searching for reinforcements.

The son of the legendary defender Lilian Thuram is one of the favorites to arrive to Nervion, according to several Spanish websites.

It is not the first time Marcus Thuram has been linked with the six times UEL champions – even last summer there were rumors about it.

Sevilla sees the French forward as a quality replacement in case either Moroccan striker Youssef En-Nesyri or Argentinian winger Lucas Ocampos depart the club.


Sharing similarities with both, as well as being able to play in any position of the attacking sector, his physical prowess also fits very well in Sevilla's style of play and in manager Julen Lopetegui's preferences.

Despite having just one year remaining on his contract with Borussia Mönchengladbach, the price of the transfer will not be necessarily cheap, as the German club is reportedly asking for a transfer fee of €28 millions for the 24-year-old.

This would be the reason why the arrival of the Frenchman would only be possible if Sevilla make an important sale.

Thuram has also been linked with a move to the Serie A, particularly with Inter, with the forward reportedly preferring a transfer to Italy.

Thuram is not the only player linked with a move away from Gladbach, as Embolo, Plea and Bensebaini are some of the other names set to leave the club this summer.

Ginter's and Poulsen's futures are already away from the club, while Jonas Hofmann does not rule out a change with his contract running out in 2023.
