Inter Milan are reportedly keeping tabs on Nice youngster Khephren Thuram. However, the French side is requesting a big transfer fee.

This summer, the Nerazzurri have already signed Khephren’s older brother, Marcus Thuram. The latter joined the club after completing a free transfer from Borussia Monchengladbach.

Therefore, the Italian giants are aiming for a family reunion at Appiano Gentile. However, this could prove to be a complicated task.

According to Il Corriere dello Sport via FcInterNews, Nice are holding out for a hefty price. Otherwise, they won’t part ways with the 22-year-old star.

As the source explains, the Beneamata turned their attention towards the Frenchman following the unceremonious collapse of the Lazar Samardzic operation.

Nonetheless, this will prove to be a costly deal for the Nerazzurri. The source doesn’t mention any figures, but states that Nice are shooting high in their demands.

Therefore, Inter could turn to Stefano Sensi for the sixth midfielder spot in what would be an internal solution.

The 28-year-old has just returned from a loan spell at Monza. He also delivered impressive displays during the pre-season.

The report expects this one to go to the wire, with Inter taking their final decision on the matter towards the end of the summer transfer session.

For his part, Khephren Thuram is a central midfielder who began his career at Boulogne. He joined Monaco in 2016 before making the switch to Nice in 2019. His contract with the club runs until 2025.

The 22-year-old was born in Italy at the time when his legendary father Lilian Thuram was representing Parma.
