Southampton: Source shares Bright Osayi-Samuel update -Southampton Transfer Rumours

An ‘industry source’ has now shared a major Southampton transfer update involving Fenerbahce forward Bright Osayi-Samuel.

The Lowdown: Semmens eyeing moves…

The Saints and their transfer chief Martin Semmens have allegedly been planning some Premier League moves behind the scenes with the 2022 summer window now edging very close.

It has been reported that bolstering the attacking areas could become a real priority at St Mary’s, as links emerge to the likes of Manchester City striker Liam Delap.

This comes as Ralph Hasenhuttl seems unlikely to seal Chelsea loanee Armando Broja on a permanent basis but, according to reports, a forward isn’t the only position that Southampton could strengthen.

The Latest: Saints eye Osayi-Samuel swoop…

As per Football Insider‘s ‘industry source’, Southampton – and by extension Semmens – are now ‘plotting’ a move to sign Osayi-Samuel this summer, weighing up a summer bid for the former QPR ace.

This comes as the club ‘highly regard’ and admire the versatile 24-year-old, having been blown away by his form in Turkey.

However, they face real competition for his signature, with both West Ham and Brentford also in contention.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Adept at playing both as a winger and right wing-back, Osayi-Samuel has really impressed in the Turkish Super League.

Hailed as ‘quality’ by Kevin Phillips, the former Championship star has averaged more successful take-ons per 90 in Fenerbache’s squad than anyone else (2.3), which shows why his former manager Mark Warburton said he is a ‘real handful’ who ‘terrifies defenders’.

He also ranks in their top six league performers by average match rating and has played the second-most minutes domestically, proving what a brilliant asset he is (WhoScored).

Depending on the price tag, Semmens must surely consider advancing with the move.
