Juventus close to signing another midfielder

Juventus are on the verge of finalizing a deal for OGC Nice midfielder Khephren Thuram. The Italian giants have submitted a final bid of €20 million as a fixed fee, with the total potential package worth around €24-25 million, including add-ons. Negotiations on the add-ons structure are ongoing, but a green light is expected soon. Personal terms with Thuram have already been agreed upon, making the deal imminent.

The acquisition would mark Juventus’ second significant signing of the summer, following the official confirmation of Douglas Luiz joining from Aston Villa. The Brazilian midfielder moved to Juventus in a deal valued at €50 million, which will be paid in four installments. Luiz has signed a contract that will keep him at the club until June 2029.

Juventus are undergoing a rebuilding process this summer, having replaced manager Maximilliano Allegri with Thiago Motta. The addition of Thuram and Luiz is expected to bolster the team’s midfield as they aim to reclaim their status at the top of Italian football.
