Borussia Monchengladbach director Roland Virkus has insisted that the club do not need to sell, amidst interest from Inter in winger Marcus Thuram.

The Nerazzurri have been identified as suitors of the Frenchman after it emerged that he would not be willing to sign a new contract, and his current deal expires in June before he becomes available on a free transfer.

However, in a press conference earlier today, and as reported by, Virkus admitted that whilst Gladbach were not currently in a position in which they were able to invest heavily, there was no requirement for them to make sales in the winter window.

The 55-year-old did concede that this situation could change though, and Gladbach’s transfer policy remained fluid.

“We are not in a moment in which we can act, if anything we have to react,” Virkus claimed.

“We keep an eye on the market and one or two players have already been identified.

“For the moment we do not think about selling, but obviously it will always be necessary to understand what will make sense.”

Thuram joined Gladbach from Guingamp in 2019 and has made 119 appearances across all competitions, scoring 41 goals.

The son of former Juventus and Parma star Lilian, Thuram has caught the eye with 13 goals from 17 Bundesliga appearances this season.
