Marcus Thuram offered to Newcastle ahead of January - journalist

Journalist Dean Jones has told Give Me Sport that Newcastle United are now weighing up a move for Marcus Thuram after being offered the striker ahead of the January transfer window.

Newcastle are definitely going to be one side to watch in the winter window. Eddie Howe’s men are absolutely flying in the Premier League. And they are playing some brilliant football.

Of course, they have the potential to do some serious business in January. And given their superb form, they may perhaps be tempted to bring forward some of their plans.

Thuram offered to Newcastle

One player who has already been linked with a move to Tyneside is Thuram. The Sun reported at the weekend that Newcastle were eyeing talks with the 25-year-old in January. However, they face competition from the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham.

Thuram is out of contract in the summer. So it was not entirely clear whether the January talks were concerning an immediate move or a pre-contract deal ahead of next season.

But Jones’ comments appear to hint that Thuram could make the switch immediately. He said that Newcastle are happy with the valuation put to them when the striker was offered to the Magpies.

“Thuram has been offered to Newcastle for the next window. He’s somebody that they are willing to consider. They see that he holds good value at the price that’s been put to them,” he told Give Me Sport.

Thuram is a player who would move to Tyneside with bags of confidence. He is on the cusp of enjoying the best season yet of his career, with Borussia Monchengladbach.

That form propelled Thuram into the France squad for the World Cup. He will do well to see a lot of game-time for Didier Deschamps’ men. But any player who breaks into the current side is clearly a real talent.

He has been described as a ‘phenomenal‘ player. And it must be noted that Howe has got some amazing performances out of the signings he has made at Newcastle.

So it is little surprise that the Magpies are seriously tempted after being offered Thuram.
