TOTTENHAM have joined the race to sign Marcus Thuram when he becomes a free agent in the summer.
The forward’s club Borussia Monchengladbach have begrudgingly confirmed he will leave when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Newcastle and Chelsea are among the other English clubs to have shown interest in the left-sided forward.
Thuram, 25, is the son of legendary France defender Lilian, 51, who was part of a formidable Juventus side in his heyday.
And now Spurs have emerged as a possible destination for the nine-cap star.
With Son Heung-min turning 31 in July and Arnaut Danjuma, 26, only in on loan from Villarreal, the North London club are keen to bolster their attacking options.
Gladbach sporting director Roland Virkus German news outlet Sport1: “With Marcus Thuram, we stretched.
“But we’ve decided to allow Thuram to leave.
“The fact he will leave on a free is not a positive situation.
“I can’t sugarcoat it – we have to accept that there are bigger clubs he might move to.”

Five of Thuram’s caps came at this winter’s World Cup in Qatar.
He was introduced as a sub before half-time in the final defeat to Argentina.
