AC Milan have reportedly found themselves an unconventional ally in their quest to land Khephren Thuram, in the shape of his brother Marcus.

The older sibling joined Inter Milan last summer, becoming an instant hit.

The 26-year-old formed a deadly striking partnership with club captain Lautaro Martinez. Many consider him one of the best summer coups in Europe as he joined the Nerazzurri on a free transfer.

Nevertheless, Marcus isn’t the only one of Lilian Thuram’s offspring who is making a name for himself on the international level.

23-year-old Khephren Thuram has become a French national team in his own right.

The young midfielder has already become a pillar at Nice. However, he’ll most likely end up signing for a bigger European club.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport via FcInterNews, Milan have emerged as a serious candidate to snap up Khephren’s services.

The source believes Nice are requesting 40 million euros to relinquish the services of their prized asset.

Nevertheless, the Rossoneri will try to negotiate a discount, banking in on the player’s contractual situation. After all, the player’s contract with Nice will expire in 2025.

AC Milan Seek Assistance From Marcus Thuram To Forge Move For Younger Brother Khephren

Moreover, Milan will be hoping to avoid a bidding war with other European suitors. Therefore, they’ll be looking to gain the player’s favor, which would facilitate their quest.

In this regard, the Diavolo could receive some assistance from Marcus.

As the source explains, the Inter striker would relish a reunion with his younger brother in Milano.

Therefore, Marcus’ help may tip the scale in Milan’s favor, if he manages to convince Khephren to join him in the city.
