Tottenham ponder bid for Borussia Monchengladbach pair Pléa and Thuram

Tottenham are chasing Borussia Monchengladbach's attacking pair Alassane Pléa and Marcus Thuram.

Le 10 Sport says new Spurs manager Nuno and sporting Fabio Paratici are fans of both players.

And Spurs are prepared to try for the France internationals.

Plea, a centre-forward, and winger Thuram have both long been linked with a move to England.

At Spurs, Plea would be viewed as a potential replacement for unsettled star centre-forward Harry Kane. Thuram, meanwhile, can play on a flank and centrally and would add attacking versatility to Nuno's squad. Thuram is the son of former Barcelona and Juventus defender Lilian Thuram.

With a contract to 2023, Plea enjoyed an impressive campaign last season, scoring 12 goals in 39 appearances and producing five assists. Thuram, also with a deal to 2023, scored 11 goals in 40 appearances.

For the moment, Spurs are yet to approach Gladbach, but are now discussing the prospect of a moving for the pair.
