Juventus sign Khephren Thuram from OGC Nice

Juventus have secured the signature of French midfielder Khephren Thuram from OGC Nice for a fee in the region of £20m.

Khephren follows in the footsteps of his father Lilian Thuram who is regarded as one of the greatest fullbacks of all time in moving to Serie A and playing for Juventus.

During his time at Nice, Thuram developed into a star performer in Ligue 1, using his immense physical threat to dominate in the middle of the park.

His versatility will see him become a valuable asset in Turin, having the ability to play as a box-to-box midfielder, a deeper lying number six, an attacking midfielder and even on the left-side of the pitch.
