And with that, some will be even more hopeful that Newcastle will strengthen next month with a massive opportunity now on the horizon for the club.

Thuram has told Borussia Monchengladbach that he is not signing a new deal with his current contract up at the end of the season.

There is interest from Inter Milan, who want to sign the Frenchman on a pre-contract deal. However, Monchengladbach would rather sell him for a fee next month. And they are looking for around £10 million.

There is a lot of attention from the Premier League. 90min names Arsenal, Aston Villa, Tottenham and Manchester United as clubs who have all spoken to his representatives.

However, the report names Newcastle as the side showing the most concrete interest in the Premier League. They have held talks with his agents. And they are ready to make a move in January if he is keen to join.

Thuram has been in outstanding form so far this season. He has already scored 10 goals in the Bundesliga. And he played his part in France reaching the World Cup final in Qatar.

He is a ‘phenomenal‘ talent available for such a low price. And if Newcastle can do a deal for just £10 million, it could prove to be an absolutely inspired piece of business.
