Tottenham could make a ‘surprise’ €10 million (£8.6 million) bid for West Ham United transfer target Marcus Thuram in January.

That’s according to football journalist Ignazio Genuardi who claims that a ‘surprise’ move to Tottenham for the 25-year-old forward cannot be ruled out this winter.

That’s obviously very bad news for West Ham.

Hammers boss David Moyes allegedly wants to bring the French attacker to the London Stadium.

Now it seems as though Tottenham are set to press ahead with their interest in Thuram though. He could be available for just €10 million (£8.6 million), according to German publication BILD.

That is an unbelievable bargain, and Moyes should be all over it it.

Unfortunately for us, it appears as though we could be beaten to the punch…

Tottenham ready January bid for West Ham target Marcus Thuram

Ignazio Genuardi claims that a surprise move to Spurs cannot be ruled out for the Borussia Monchengladbach forward in the January transfer window:

Antonio Conte beating David Moyes to Thuram would be a big blow for the Hammers in my opinion.

He’s a top-class striker, and watching him ply his trade at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium rather than the London Stadium would be very hard to take.

The 25-year-old has been described as a ‘sensational’ player by scouting, statistics and analytical website Total Football Analysis.

Meanwhile, Get Football News Germany describe him as a ‘world-class’ striker – quite the compliment!

Thuram possesses blistering pace and can play anywhere along the front-line. He has bagged 13 goals and four assists in 17 games for Gladbach so far this season (Transfermarkt).

The six-capped France international is a really explosive striker, and is a constant menace for opposing defenders.

His pace and exceptional movement would offer West Ham a completely different facet to our attacking play.

If Tottenham make a January bid for Thuram though, the Hammers will have a real fight on our hands for the Frenchman’s signature.
