Juventus has strengthened itself with Khéphren Thuram, the club from Turin announced via the official channels. The midfielder comes from OGC Nice and signs a contract until mid-2029 at the Allianz Stadium.

Thuram was already in Turin this week, where he successfully passed the medical tests. Juventus pays twenty million euros to Nice, where he was one of the decisive players last season under current Ajax coach Francesco Farioli.

Thuram will reportedly earn 2.5 million euros per year. His move to Juventus will cost him his participation in the Olympic Games. Thuram was initially included in the Olympic selection, but Juventus does not want his participation.

Thuram is already the third summer signing for Juventus. The club previously strengthened itself with Douglas Luiz, who came from Aston Villa, and the goalkeeper Michele Di Gregorio, who came from AC Monza.

Thuram came through the youth ranks of AS Monaco before deciding to join Nice in 2019. On behalf of the Aiglons played a total of 167 times, scoring nine goals and providing twelve assists.

Thuram is the son of Juventus legend Lilian Thuram, who played for five seasons and Whites and won two national titles and one Italian Super Cup with the club during that time. Khéphren (23) is also the younger brother of Inter striker Marcus (26).

Unlike his brother Marcus, Khéphren was not part of the French European Championship selection. He has already made one cap. In March 2023, he came on just before the end of the European Championship qualifier France – Netherlands (4-0).
