Newcastle United look set for a summer preparing for the Champions League. The Magpies have reportedly identified Khephren Thuram as a potential target, according to Football Insider.

Newcastle set sights on Khephren Thuram transfer
Nice will be under no pressure to see Thuram this summer, but the Ligue 1 giants are aware that interest in the midfielder is high. The Frenchman is under contract with Nice until 2025.
Newcastle have emerged as the leading contender for his signature. However, there could be late interest in the star from Liverpool and Real Madrid. But, Los Blancos may be priced out of a move, as they edge nearer to a deal for Jude Bellingham.
Thuram has been a standout star for Nice this season, as he has scored two goals and registered two assists across 45 outings in all competitions.
