Southampton: German source shares big Taiwo Awoniyi transfer update -Southampton Transfer Rumours

German source Sport Bild has now shared a big transfer update out of Southampton involving Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi.

The Lowdown: Saints gear for summer…

The Saints and manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will be gearing up for the 2022/2023 Premier League campaign behind the scenes.

Links have already emerged to summer targets as the St Mary’s side seek to build and potentially challenge for a place higher up the top flight table next year.

It is believed that a fair few of Hasenhuttl’s squad could be heading out the door given their contract situations, including Moussa Djenepo, Nathan Redmond and Theo Walcott (GiveMeSport).

In terms of incomings, Sport Bild (via Sport Witness) now have an interesting update involving in-form Bundesliga talisman Awoniyi.

The Latest: Southampton ‘trying to sign’ Awoniyi…

The German publication claims Hasenhuttl and co are ‘trying to sign‘ Union’s striker as they now attempt a move.

This comes as Chelsea loanee and star striker Armando Broja looks set to leave Southampton and return to his parent club with a permanent deal looking unlikely as things stand.

The Verdict: Get it done…

Scoring a solid return of 13 goals in 29 top flight appearances this season, the Nigeria international has been called ‘remarkable’ for his form over 2021/2022 (Stefan Bienkowski, Bundesliga reporter).

It is believed that Awoniyi has a meagre €20 million (£17m) release clause in his deal, an affordable fee which would allow Southampton to bypass negotiations and head straight to talks over personal terms with the player.

This could mark the 24-year-old out as a seriously credible transfer target for Hasenhuttl and there is little surprise his side are now attempting a move.
