Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram could be a versatile option who would fit in with any of Inter’s current forwards in an attacking pairing if the Nerazzurri were to sign him.

This is the view in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who argue that the 25-year-old has the versatile qualities to fit in a number of different roles within a front pairing of a 3-5-2 system.

Despite standing 6’4, Thuram has not spent most of his career playing as a traditional striker.

The Frenchman has been used as a right winger in 4-2-3-1 and 4-3-3 systems, whilst he has also played as more of a second striker alongside an out-and-out Number Nine.

This season, the 25-year-old has been used as more of an out-and-out forward for Gladbach, showing his versatility.

Thuram would not exactly be the same profile as either Romelu Lukaku or Lautaro Martinez, but his combination of pace, intelligent move, and an eye for goal would allow the Frenchman to play alongside either of them.

Moreover, Thuram’s pace in behind and ability to find spaces made for him by a traditional target man means that he would most likely be able to pair very effectively with Edin Dzeko, or with Lukaku.

Meanwhile, the Gazzetta argues, the Frenchman could even play alongside Joaquin Correa, acting as more of the attacker in a pairing without a traditional striker.
