Southampton ‘came close’ to signing Bordeaux forward Francois Kamano in January, according to reports, and could return with an offer in the summer.

The Guinea international forward has been attracting attention this season, having scored nine times for the Ligue 1 outfit, and is being lined up as a potential target by a number of other clubs across the continent.

La Liga side Real Sociedad are one such club, according to local source Noticias de Gipuzkoa, as cited by Sport Witness, who also claims the Spaniards will face serious competition for Kamano’s signature.

TSN Hockey expert Bob McKenzie recently stated that he has been informed of the Saints chief’s willingness to make his return to the sport soon. Speaking on Insider Trading, as cited in a report from TSN, the insider said: “I’m told that he’s interested in coming back to be a head coach, but only if the fit is right.” Krueger has been Southampton’s chairman for just under five years and has overseen some mixed fortunes, with the club failing to build on their successes under the management of Mauricio Pochettino and Ronald Koeman.

Southampton, as well as Atletico Madrid, are interested in signing the forward, valued at €15-20million. While the Spanish capital side have been watching Kamano this season, Saints reportedly ‘came close’ to signing him in January, as did AS Monaco, and both could return with offers this summer.

Southampton had seen their name linked with Kamano as early as November, and a move in January could have been scuppered by Bordeaux, with the French club adamant that they wouldn’t let their man leave midway through the season.

Watford were also linked in January, and could also prove to be summer competition for Southampton if the Saints maintain their interest in the 22-year old.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are on the up, after a string of good results since his arrival at the club, and look set to stay in the division for another season.

Valery signs fresh Southampton deal.
Yan Valery has signed a contract extension at Southampton, keeping him at the Premier League club until 2023. The 20-year-old Frenchman, who can operate as a right-back or right midfielder, has become a regular starter under Ralph Hasenhuttl, making his top-flight debut under the Austrian against Manchester United in January. Valery has gone on to feature in 16 Premier League games this season, scoring in his last two matches against United and Tottenham respectively, the latter of which sparked a late comeback which saw the Saints win 2-1 on Saturday. Proud day for me and my family today.
