Marcus Thuram joins Inter on a free transfer

Marcus Thuram joins Inter on a free transfer and signs a five-year deal. The Nerazzurri have been monitoring the French forward for a long time, and their interest became concrete after the World Cup. His father, Lillian Thuram won the World Cup with France in 1998 and played with top clubs like Juventus and Barcelona. The Nerazzurri have signed him as a replacement for Edin Dzeko, but the Thruam has a different skill set and will bring dynamism in the attack.

Thuram played generally as a wide forward in Gladbach. But he likes to get inside and make runs behind the defense to finish chances. The Nerazzurri do not play with a system that includes a winger. So Thruam will like to operate in the center along with Lautaro Martinez. However, it remains to be seen how Inter will deal with Lukaku’s loan situation with Chelsea. Nonetheless, Thuram will play plenty of games to prove his worth at Inter.

Parma-born Thuram knows about Serie A and has been watching the league since he was a kid. His idol was Ronaldo Nazario growing up. He said it feels like a dream to wear the same jersey as Ronaldo did. However, the French striker never played in Italy and will have to adapt to the playstyle of Serie A in his first season. As a forward who thrives in transition and attack space left by the opponents, Thuram will have to adapt to the defensive nature of the league. His father, who played for years with Parma and Juventus, has helped him with his prudent input.

Thuram has scored 44 goals for his Bundesliga side in 134 games and is yet to unlock his full potential. The Nerazzurri will hope he supports their talisman Lautaro. The Argentine striker struggled towards the end with Dzeko’s dip in form.
