Arsenal could reportedly make a move for Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram in the upcoming transfer window, as per the transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

After an injury-plagued campaign last term, the 25-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant start to this season, scoring 13 goals and notching up four assists in 17 games so far in all competitions.

The Frenchman has recently emerged as a potential target for Arsenal. Thuram’s current deal with Daniel Farke’s side is set to expire at the end of this season and the forward is unlikely to extend his contract.

The Gunners are seemingly looking to take advantage of the France international’s current situation at Borussia-Park and are eyeing to sign him up for a cut-price deal in January or for free next summer.

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Romano has claimed that Arsenal could formalise their interest in signing the Borussia Monchengladbach man in the upcoming transfer window. The forward is expected to be available for free at the end of this season and he is not signing a new deal.

The journalist further states that Mikel Arteta’s side could face tough competition to sign the 25-year-old as Serie A, and Ligue 1 clubs as well as other Premier League teams are also contemplating a move for him.

When asked whether Arsenal would make a move for Thuram, Fabrizio Romano said:

“Yes, Thuram could be an opportunity because he’s a player who will be available for a free next summer. He is not extending his contract and so there are many clubs interested in him from Italy, from England and from France.”

Marcus Thuram would be a very good acquisition for Arsenal, given he can play anywhere across the front line. The striker is quick, strong, good in the air, and can finish off his chances as well. So, he possesses almost every attribute to play in Mikel Arteta’s system.

The 25-year-old is valued at around £26m (€30m) by Transfermarkt and it would be a great coup if the north London club can manage to sign him up for a cut-price deal in January or for free next at the end of this campaign.
