Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram was all set to join Inter over the summer before suffering a knee injury changed the Nerazzurri’s plans.

This according to German news outlet Bild, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri nearly completed a €25 million deal for the Frenchman before the injury, but that they moved on to Lazio’s Joaquin Correa once it was clear the extent of his knee injury.

Thuram emerged as a serious target for Inter a few weeks ago as the club’s search for attacking reinforcements was underway, and talks with the player and his club were reported to have been advanced.

The 24-year-old was serious about a move, and terms were all but agreed on the switch which would see him become the second major attacking signing of the summer for Inter after Edin Dzeko.

However, the forward was unlucky to sustain a serious knee injury during the clash with Leverkusen on August 21, and this effectively ruled him out of the Nerazzurri’s thinking and caused them to turn their attention quickly to Correa.
