Marcus Thuram’s Form at Inter Milan Benefits from Departure of Romelu Lukaku

Milan, Italy – The former Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram is making waves at Inter Milan, benefiting from the departure of Romelu Lukaku last summer. The 26-year-old French international joined Inter last summer, making an immediate impact after the departure of Lukaku.

Thuram’s signing for the Nerazzurri on a free transfer coincided with the exit of Edin Dzeko, making him a significant addition to the squad in the absence of Lukaku. It was initially expected that Thuram would compete for playing time with Lukaku, but the Belgian striker’s negotiations with Juventus led to a collapse in his relationship with Inter.

As a result, the absence of Lukaku meant that Thuram had to step up and immediately became a key player for the Nerazzurri. While having Lukaku as a teammate would have potentially eased the pressure on Thuram to make an instant impact, his absence allowed the Frenchman to thrive under pressure and secure a spot in the starting eleven.

Thuram’s swift adaptation and impact in the team has been a pleasant surprise for the club and fans. His early success at Inter Milan has demonstrated his ability to excel under pressure and seize opportunities when presented with them. Without the shadow of Lukaku, Thuram has risen to the occasion and cemented his place in the team, proving to be a valuable addition for Inter.
