According to Football Insider, Southampton are one of a number of clubs said to be interested in signing Jan Kuchta this summer.
Saints want Kuchta
Kuchta was in action for Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday as his side took on Rangers.
As per Football Insider, the Saints are one of several Premier League clubs looking at the 24-year-old. The other teams mentioned are West Ham United, Newcastle United and Brighton.
This has been Kuchta’s best season by far as a professional footballer. He has amassed 13 goals and and seven assists in 25 games in all competitions – he has only scored 36 goals throughout his career (Transfermarkt). As Slavia have reached the round of 16 in European competition, Kuchta has played his part in getting them there, scoring twice in that run.
Would you like to sign Kuchta?
Currently valued at just £900,000 (Transfermarkt), he could well be a bargain for any club trying to sign him. He is also still quite young, meaning he has plenty of time to improve as a player. With Danny Ings’ future at St Mary’s still uncertain (The Telegraph), Ralph Hasenhuttl may be in need of a new striker very soon. It remains to be seen whether Kuchta moves to the Premier League in the summer.
