Barcelona joined Liverpool in the race for Marcus Thuram

Barcelona and Manchester City are reportedly preparing to battle Liverpool for the signature of Borussia Monchengladbach attacker Marcus Thuram during next summer’s transfer window.

The 23-year-old has been in impressive form for his German club during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring three times and contributing five assists in 10 appearances in all competitions.

A recent report claimed that Liverpool were interested in signing the attacker, who is the son of World Cup winner and France legend Lilian Thuram.

However, according to Bild, both Barca and Man City are also in the hunt for a player who has two goals and two assists in three Champions League outings this season.

Thuram, who has earned a call up to the France squad for the nation’s upcoming matches against Finland, Portugal and Sweden, is contracted to Gladbach until June 2023.

The former Sochaux youngster has scored 17 times and registered 14 assists in 49 outings for his current club.
