The Bianconeri are close to agreeing the sale of Denis Zakaria to AS Monaco, with the move expected to be completed in the coming week, leaving the club with the option to sign another midfielder.
Once the move has gone through, Tuttosport report that the club will indeed be in the market for a new player in the centre of the pitch. Top of the list is reportedly Thuram, the son of former Juve full-back Lilian Thuram.
The 22-year-old talent is also being tracked by PSG, Liverpool and Serie A rivals Inter, however Juve have reportedly spoken with Nice about the prospect of signing the young talent this summer.
Thuram has been with the Ligue 1 side for the last five seasons, playing for their ‘B’ team before making the move to the senior squad in 2019, making 138 appearances and scoring 8 goals in four seasons.
