French U21 Forward Linked To Newcastle Has Signed With Bundesliga Club

Guingamp forward Marcus Thuram has been signed by Borussia Monchengladbach in a €9m deal. Marcus is the son of former French International and 1998 World Cup winning defender Lilian Thuram.

Here is a tweet from Gladbach announcing the signing of the 21-year-old.

Newcastle were linked with the striker last month along with Everton. The player was made available by Guingamp due to their relegation to Ligue 2.

Thuram was one of the few bright spots for the French club last season scoring 13 goals in 38 appearances while playing mostly as a left winger and occasionally as a striker.

The 6’2″ right-footed Frenchman will turn twenty-two in August and Gladbach looks to have gotten a really good deal for Thuram.
