West Ham United cannot afford to dither if they are seriously interested in forward Marcus Thuram.
West Ham boss David Moyes has watching Borussia Monchengladbach striker Thuram according to a report from ExWHUemployee.
Ex claims that the Hammers have been watching the Gladbach forward but as yet, no formal approach has been made.
Insider claims West Ham have been monitoring forward Marcus Thuram
That will need to change quickly if West Ham are genuinely interested.
That’s after a report from France last night claimed Inter Milan could look to sign the son of World Cup winner Lilian for around £25 million.
Thuram’s club Gladbach are said to be looking for £25m plus bonuses to part with the 24-year-old – well within West Ham’s reported budget.

But Inter are trying to drive down the price to nearer £20m says the report.
We analysed Thuram’s game and highlighted that – while his scoring record is not emphatic given he is more of a wide forward – he has all the attributes to be converted into a fully fledged, fearsome striker by David Moyes given his record doing just that with Marko Arnautovic and Michail Antonio.
His overall contribution since arriving in the Bundesliga has been impressive. He has scored 25 goals and provided 21 assists across 80 games in all competitions since signing for the German club in 2019.
But while ExWHUemployee has pointed out West Ham’s interest he did claim no formal bid had been made.
That will have to change fast. Because if Inter Milan are serious then West Ham will face a tough task to compete.
West Ham also linked with Thuram’s teammate and fellow wide forward Embolo – could Moyes work his magic again?
Again, Embolo is more of a wide forward. But he too possesses all the necessary attributes to be a success in the Premier League.
It would come down to whether Moyes could mould him into a striker in the same way he has with Antonio and Arnie.
