2006 Champions League finalists Arsenal will have to see off competition from two Premier League clubs in the bid to sign Guingamp attacker Marcus Thuram when the transfer window reopens in the summer.

This is according to the specific report from French media outlet Le 10 Sport which revealed that the three clubs are monitoring his situation at Guingamp who are battling to retain their status in the top flight of French football.

Marcus Thuram is the son of French football legend Lilian Thuram.

Lilian Thuram played with distinction for clubs like Italian Serie A giants Juventus and Spanish champions Barcelona.

He sealed his legendary status in French football when the ex-French right-back played a big role in the France team that won the 1998 World Cup tournament on home soil.

Lilian Thuram played his best game for France in the semifinals of that tournament.

He scored two goals as host France came from behind to beat Croatia 2-1 in their semifinal clash.

France went on to stun the then world champions Brazil 3-0 courtesy goals from Zinedine Zidane (2) and Emmanuel Petite.

Arsenal need a new forward/winger ahead of next season and Marcus Thuram could be an option for the Gunners who have to fight off the interest of rivals like Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
