The 23-year-old did well for the German side last season and managed to score 11 goals and add 12 assists in all competitions.
Tottenham could certainly use some depth in the wide areas and the French winger can play on both flanks.
Erik Lamela’s likes have been linked with a move away from the London club this summer and Thuram is said to be a quality alternative.
However, it will be interesting to see if the Premier League side can finalize the transfer before bringing in a new manager.
They have yet to name a long-term successor for Jose Mourinho and they have been linked with Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte and Erik Ten Hag in recent weeks.
Thuram will add pace, flair and goals to Tottenham’s attack and his straightforward style of play could help him settle into the Premier League quickly.
The 23-year-old is yet to reach his peak and is expected to improve with experience.
There is no doubt that he could prove to be a very useful addition to Tottenham’s attack if they can grab him for a reasonable price.
