Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC are tracking Lilian Thuram’s teenage son Khephren, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the two Premier League clubs are interested in the AS Monaco youth prospect.

The same article states that Khephren hasn’t signed a professional contract with the Ligue 1 side to leave the door ajar for potential suitors.

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 former Juventus star was ranked as one of Europe’s best defenders during his spell in Turin.

He was a member of France’s World Cup-winning squad in 1998 and scored twice in their 2-1 win over Croatia in the semi-final.

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.
