Rennes and Nice try for Thilo Kehrer


By: Manu Tournoux

392 minutes of play played, 4 small starts for 12 appearances in total, 0 goals, 0 assists. Here is Thilo Kehrer’s poor record since the start of his season at West Ham. Relegated to the substitutes’ bench by David Moyes, preferring to line up Angelo Ogbonna, Nayef Aguerd, Kurt Zouma or even Konstantinos Mavropanos, decisive against the Gunners (2-0) this Wednesday evening, the former Paris Saint-Germain defender logically sees his future darkens for the Hammers.

According to our information, the management of the London club is not opposed to the idea of ​​seeing their protégé leave the club, although his salary remains substantial. One thing is certain, many clubs already seem ready to take advantage of this delicate context to relaunch the German international with 27 caps. Lately, Sky Sports Italy affirmed, in this respect, that the native of Tübingen was one of AS Roma’s priority tracks for this winter, specifying that AC Milan was also a candidate likely to welcome the 1m86 right-hander. But that’s not all.

Rennes and Nice in the fight over a 6-month loan!

Still according to our indiscretions, two other Ligue 1 teams are also very interested. With this in mind, we are able to tell you that Stade Rennais, tenth in the championship and often betrayed by its defensive errors, is currently trying to obtain a six-month loan from the former Parisian. Aware of its shortcomings in this sector of play, the Breton club would thus offer itself a profile capable of evolving in all positions of defense and experienced in the French championship after its time with the Rouge et Bleu between 2018 and 2022.

Be wary, however, because the SRFC is far from being alone in this situation. Indeed, we can also say that OGC Nice wishes to obtain a loan until the end of the season. Despite an iron defense and nine small goals conceded since the start of the 2023-2024 financial year, the Aiglons would be seduced by the idea of ​​relaunching the 27-year-old German. Tracked in Serie A and at the heart of a battle in Ligue 1, Thilo Kehrer can in any case expect a hectic winter transfer window…
