In the 51st minute of this afternoon’s clash between Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach, Marcus Thuram showed his quality by starting and finishing a fine move.
The youngster, who is the son of France’s highest-capped player of all-time Lillian Thuram, brilliantly chested down a ball from his goalkeeper to spark an opportunity.
Strike partner Alassane Plea then picked up the ball and played an inch-perfect pass into Thuram’s path, the exciting youngster completed the move by hitting the back of the net with a fine half-volley.
According to the Express via German reports, Thuram has attracted Liverpool’s interest in the last couple of weeks.
The report adds that Jurgen Klopp is eyeing the addition of a backup forward in the next transfer window, Thurman could be an ideal option given the pace and power he’d bring to the front line.

The 22-year-old could be used in a similar capacity to Divock Origi due to his all-around attributes, the Frenchman is naturally a centre-forward but is comfortable when fielded on either wing.
