There is good news for Inter, with reports in Germany that Bayern Munich are backing off from their transfer target Marcus Thuram of Borussia Monchengladbach.
If confirmed, the news in Bild newspaper would be a huge boost for the Nerazzurri, as Bayern had emerged as the favourites to sign the 25-year-old.
He will be a free agent when his contract expires in June 2023 and Bild report today that the Bayern Munich chiefs have decided to go for a bigger and stronger centre-forward to finally replace Robert Lewandowski.
That means Thuram is not the profile they are looking for, as while he can play as a centre-forward, he is also quick and versatile on the wings.
Inter had already been on the verge of signing Thuram last season, but that was ruined by a knee injury.
He has found the net 13 times with four assists in 17 competitive games for Borussia Monchengladbach so far this season.
Marcus is the son of former Parma and Juventus defender Lilian Thuram.
The same report also suggests that Borussia Monchengladbach have set the asking price for a January sale at €7m.
