Southampton will be desperate to improve after the international break as they’ve struggled to ensure consistency under Mark Hughes so far this season.
The Saints failed to secure all three points against Watford last time out as they conceded a late equaliser in what was a match full of controversy. However, it appears as if Mark Hughes is eyeing a swoop, as according to Mundo Deportivo journalist Francesc Aguilar (via The Mirror), Southampton are keeping tabs on Sebastian Walukiewicz.
Indeed, the 18-year-old has enjoyed his breakthrough this season for Pogon Szczecin, impressing in 13 games in the top-flight.
Interestingly, Southampton are believed to be monitoring Walukiewicz’s situation ahead of a potential January switch.
However, they do face stiff competition from the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Barcelona.
Southampton have been known to develop a number of impressive youngsters over the years, so there’s no reason as to why they can’t pull off yet another piece of magic.
The central defender has the potential to become one of the best central defenders in English football if he makes the move and continues to develop, with the foundations already in place over in Poland.
Southampton have looked vulnerable in defence this season, which has contributed massively towards their current league position, so Hughes should bring the youth international in to build for the future and provide quality in the present to help avoid relegation.
