Striker Marcus Thuram has certainly had an instant impact at Inter Milan.

The 26-year-old only arrived at the Nerazzurri during the summer transfer window. He joined on a free transfer following his contract with Borussia Monchengladbach expiring.

But Thuram has not taken long to hit the ground running.

And this has looked to be a key factor in Inter pushing for the Serie A title.

Football stats account Opta highlighted just how impressive of a start Marcus Thuram has had at Inter.

They tweeted, “9- Marcus Thuram has been involved in 9 goals this season (four goals and five assist), no player has been involved in more goals in the first 10 games for Inter in #SerieA since the details on the assists (since 2004/05). Decisive.
