ARSENAL are circling striker Marcus Thuram in the hope of a bargain deal if Ligue 1 strugglers Guingamp go down.

Borussia Dortmund are also in for the France Under-20 star whose contract runs out in the summer.

Marcus Thuram could be available at a reduced price as his contract ends in the summer and his club Guingamp seem likely to be relegated from Ligue 1

the 21-year-old son of Les Bleus legend Lillian is strongly tipped to leave as Guingamp – seven points from safety – seem doomed to the drop.

Thuram has hit 11 goals, many from the left wing, despite his third-bottom side being the lowest scorers in the French top flight.

And two months ago he notched a late winner at PSG in the Coupe de la Ligue to send the champions to their first domestic cup defeat for five years.

Le10 Sport say the Gunners have revved up their interest in Italy-born Thuram.


But Dortmund are also keen, having already plundered France for a strong of other talents.

The Bundesliga giants pounced for Saint-Etienne’s Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who they then sold to Arsenal for £56m, Rennes’ France forward Ousmane Dembele, now with Barcelona, and centre-back Dan-Axel Zagadou from Paris Saint-Germain B.

Apart from his World Cup-winning dad, Thuram also has a 17-year-old footballing brother, who has been linked with Chelsea and Liverpool.

France Under-18 midfielder Khephren Thuram has already played in the Champions League for Monaco.

And, just like older bruv Marcus, he is also being tipped to eventually earn full caps.
