Inter Could Repeat Same Strategy For Signing Christian Eriksen In Pursuit Of Gladbach’s Marcus Thuram, Italian Media Report
Inter could look to sign Marcus Thuram from Borussia Monchengladbach with a similar strategy to how they signed Christian Eriksen from Tottenham Hotspur.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that the Nerazzurri could sign the Frenchman six months before his contract expires in order to beat the competition for his signature.
Thuram has no shortage of suitors, particularly given that his current contract with Gladbach runs out at the end of June 2023.
The 25-year-old would certainly be an attractive target on a free transfer next summer, but could also be signed for a bargain fee in January if his club decide to cash in while they can.
This was the case with Eriksen at Tottenham Hotspur in January of 2020, with the Premier League club deciding that they would rather sell him for a fee than keep the Dane for the remainder of the season and lose him for free.
Inter were able to take advantage of that situation, and according to the Gazzetta, could look to pursue the same strategy with Thuram’s situation as well.
