With Paul Pogba caught in a doping controversy, Juventus Turin is actively preparing for his succession, and Khephren Thuram is a targeted candidate.
Close to PSG last summer, Khephren Thuram ultimately stayed at Nice. He could join his brother Marcus in Serie A. According to his agent, Rafaele Pimenta, interviewed by Calciomercato.it, Khephren Thuram could indeed replace Paul Pogba at Juventus Turin.
“Khephren Thuram in Italy? You’ve already had one Thuram (Lilian, who played for Juventus and Parma). One of them plays at Inter (Marcus), and you want another one (laughs)? We’re really talking about a beautiful family, with a father, Lilian, who is very special. He is a deep and intelligent person,” Pimenta stated.
The player is valued at 40 million euros according to the Transfermarkt website, and the Frenchman is under contract with OGC Nice until June 2025.
