Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram says he has not spoken to any other club regarding a move away from the Bundesliga.
Manchester City have reportedly looked at the France international, while it has also been claimed that Liverpool sounded out the striker in the summer before the Reds made their move for Wolves’ Diogo Jota instead.
However, Thuram says he is completely focused on playing for Gladbach and he has not even considered leaving due to the fact he is very happy in Germany:
“I am currently fully, 100 per cent, concentrating on Borussia and I am very happy to be here. I have also not spoken to any other club. Borussia has enabled me to take many career steps, I play the Champions League and have made the leap into the national team. In Gladbach, I not only grew as a player, but also as a person, and have developed further. Borussia was the best choice for my career.”
The Frenchman was valued at around €50m (£45m) by a report in the German press earlier this year, but the 23-year-old’s goal record would place question marks over whether he’d represent value for money.
This season, Thuram has scored four goals in 13 appearances, which is a pretty decent return, although it is by no means spectacular either. He averages a goal every three games for Gladbach so as an out and out striker, City may be better looking at other options. His flexibility to play right across the frontline, though, maybe an attractive attribute for manager Pep Guardiola.
