While he waits to officially become the Paris Saint-Germain coach, Christophe Galtier is already working on the summer transfer window and possible adjustments to the Paris squad. With a first issue, his Nice midfielder, Khphren Thuram leads.
Khphren Thuram had a great season at the Gym.
Over the hours, Christophe Galtier inevitably approaches Paris Saint-Germain. Originally regarded as a simple Plan B in the minds of Qatari decision-makers, who were waiting for Zindine Zidane, the 55-year-old technician has finally taken credit and must take care of Mauricio Pochettino’s succession on the advice of Luis Campos.
Pending a final agreement and formalisation, the current Nice coach is already working on the transfer window, with a first target leading one of his players to the Aiglons: Khphren Thuram!
Galtier wants Thuram Paris
According to information from journalist Saber Desfarges, Galtier would indeed like to take the 21-year-old French midfielder and international Espoirs to the capital. Tempted by the player’s progress, who has featured 36 times in Ligue 1 this season, the Marseille native seems confident he can integrate Thuram and take him to another level in the Reds and Blues squad.
Linked to the Aiglons until June 2025, Lilian Thuram’s son is a very promising target, as evidenced by his nomination for the Ligue 1 Best Hope trophy this season. It is also clear that the box-to-box profile and freshness are currently lacking in the Parisian group.
PSG already has several tracks in the middle
On paper, however, such a name can surprise. Because Thuram has no experience in major European competitions, but also because PSG has already made progress on other tracks in midfield with the expected acquisition of Vitinha, the midfielder who would land at €40 million from Porto, or ongoing discussions with Lille about Renato Sanches .
Not forgetting that such a revelation could also annoy the Gym, if only because of the sudden separation from Galtier and who probably will not appreciate the future ex-trainer of the players being stolen. the Paris bank blew a first name during the transfer window. It remains to be seen whether this will be heard by the management of Ile-de-France.
