According to the same story, Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC will be facing stiff competition for the 17-year-old’s signature.
His father’s former club Juventus are keeping tabs on the AS Monaco starlet ahead of a bargain move for the French talent in the summer.
Khephren netted a brilliant goal for AS Monaco in a 3-1 win over Chelsea FC in the Uefa Youth League last week.
The Daily Mail go on to add that Thurham senior hasn’t committed his son to a professional contract at AS Monaco in order to keep their options open.

The retired defender won two Serie A titles, the Uefa Cup, the Coppa Italia, the Italian and Spanish Super Cup during a decorated playing career.
