Arsenal Lining Up Summer Bid For Prolific Ligue One Wide Man

Arsenal are keen on signing Guingamp winger Marcus Thuram in the summer, according to reports in France.

The Gunners will have competition for the 21-year-old, however, with Borussia Dortmund also interested in the player.

Thuram is the son of former World Cup winner, Lillian, and he has been in good form for Guingamp this campaign despite the French club sitting third from bottom in Ligue One.

The former France Under 20 international has made 29 appearances in all competitions this campaign, scoring 11 goals in the process.

Thuram can play out wide on the left or through the middle and has excellent ball control and dribbling skills.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is looking to strengthen on the wings this summer, with the likes of Lille’s Nicolas Pepe, Rennes’ Ismaila Sarr having also been linked with a move to the Emirates.

Thuram would likely be a cheaper alternative with reports in France indicating he could be available for an affordable price.
