Tottenham Hotspur have been notified of the price for their 'priority' target Marcus Thuram from Borussia Monchengladbach this summer.


A few days ago, RMC Sport claimed that Thuram is the 'priority' target for Spurs this summer, being keen on completing a deal for the Borussia Monchengladbach forward.


The 23-year-old is set to leave the German club this summer, and Bild have provided an update on Gladbach's stance on the France international's future.


Borussia Monchengladbach's chief Max Eberl has claimed that Thuram's release clause expired last month, and so the German club are able to "freely negotiate a possible transfers", especially since the football world is recovering and clubs have more funds than they did last summer.


"As of now, there is no longer any player with us who has an exit clause. We live in a time when nothing can be excluded," Eberal said.


Eberl also admitted that in order to sell their other stars, Jonas Hofmann and Alassane Plea, who are both 28, clubs will need to offer €40 million each.


Since Thuram is only 24, the report claims that "Eberl would only be weak" if they do not ask for an offer that is higher than €40 million for the French forward.


Thuram managed 11 goals and 12 assists in all competitions this season, playing either as a left winger or as a striker.


Spurs want a different attacking option, especially if Harry Kane leaves this summer, and they will have to wait and see if they will be able to get Thuram for a relatively cheap fee or not, and whether Gladbach are willing to sell him as well.


The 23-year-old is in France's squad for Euro 2020, and so a proper deal might have to wait until the end of the competition.
