Khephren Thuram Latest:Agent Hints at Potential Transfer
In an intriguing development, Khephren Thuram’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, has sparked speculation about the Nice midfielder’s future. The hints suggest that Thuram may soon be on his way to Liverpool FC. An image posted by Pimenta of her at the Nice headquarters has fuelled the speculation, causing quite a stir among the Reds’ faithful.
As the summer transfer window swings open, Liverpool’s interest in the French sensation has been closely monitored. With the recent successful acquisition of Alexis Mac Allister for £35 million, the Merseyside club has shown it’s in the market for talent.

Anfield Index suggested last week that Liverpool have already verbally agreed on personal terms with Thuram. With personal terms off the table, the discussion now pivots towards finalising the transfer fee between the two clubs.
Although Thuram has been linked with moves to both Newcastle and Paris Saint-Germain, it is believed that neither club are prepared to match Nice’s asking price, rumoured to be in the region of £50 million.
The Thuram-Konate Connection
Liverpool’s Ibrahima Konate, himself a recent arrival at Anfield, expressed his enthusiasm for Thuram’s potential move to the club. He revealed his keenness to see Thuram, whom he refers to as his “little brother”, in a Liverpool jersey.
Konate shared with RMC Sport:
“I would be very happy for him [Thuram] to come to Liverpool and I would take him under my wing and I would do everything for him to progress and become the player he wants to become.”
Sharing fond memories of their time together, Konate added:
“Khephren is like my little brother, he’s someone I saw growing up. I saw him perform and progress at a level, it was incredible.”
With the Liverpool fans’ excitement growing by the day, it seems we may soon see Khephren Thuram add his dynamism to the Liverpool midfield. If the transfer goes ahead, it could be a significant coup for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
