Marcus Thuram

as an alternative for



Duvan Zapata

, whose fee will be around €30m plus bonuses and the Serie A champions are not prepared to pay that amount.

They are considering a more creative target instead, who can work under Simone Inzaghi.

I can’t exclude anything until the transfer window shuts, so it’s all speculation so far,”

Max Eberl

told reporters in Germany.

“The fact is we would be extremely reluctant to lose Marcus, so we’d do it with a heavy heart.”

As per reports from

Sky Sport Italia

, the 24-year-old’s agent Mino Raiola is talking with the Nerazzurri on a deal for the Frenchman.

I have a good rapport with Mino Raiola. Marcus can score even more goals than he did last season,”

continued the Gladbach chief.

“He has incredible potential, power and dynamism, so Thuram can do much more. Doing it at Gladbach is certainly a good move for him.”

However, according to


, the France international has been on the lookout for a new club for a while now as Borussia Monchengladbach are not playing in the Champions League now.
