Inter could look to move for Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram next January, with the club unlikely to bring him in this summer thanks to a knee injury suffered this weekend.
This according to today’s print edition of Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, who report that a move for the 24-year-old could be postponed until the January transfer window but that he is still on the Nerazzurri’s radar.
Thuram had emerged as a target for Inter last week and the club had been moving swiftly in trying to get a deal done for him, with talks reportedly progressing quickly with Gladbach over a sale.
However, the player was unfortunate to suffer a major knee injury in the Bundesliga side’s 4-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen over the weekend, and he is expected to spend around two months on the sidelines recovering from the knock.
The Nerazzurri’s interest in the French attacker has not ended conclusively, however, and while they will pursue another target before the end of the summer window they will also look to swoop for him in January.
