Southampton fans have been reacting to the news that Levante are set to sell Jorge de Frutos for a fee of just £12.8m amidst interest from the Saints.
The St. Mary’s outfit have been heavily linked with a move for winger De Frutos (The Mirror via HITC), who is also being targetted by La Liga champions Real Madrid. He is said to have a release clause of £25m (AS), but he could be available for a fee of just €15m (£12.8m) according to Super Deporte.
The 24-year-old has been in good form for the Spanish side so far this campaign, scoring three goals and providing 10 assists in all competitions (Transfermarkt). Beating Real Madrid to his signature will be a challenge, but more playing time on the south coast may help Ralph Hasenhuttl and co’s cause.

The news was shared on Twitter by @SouthamptonPage, and it seems the Saints supporters would very much like him at their club next season amidst this update. They took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
