And Newcastle are reportedly willing to pay £10million for the Italian-born forward, according to Football Insider. Thuram has scored 13 goals in 17 appearances for Monchengladbach so far this campaign.

Thuram operates as a central striker but is also capable of playing on either wing. Newcastle have Callum Wilson, Chris Wood and Alexander Isak as their striker options heading into the January window.
