Southampton interested in Rogic move

Southampton interested in Rogic move Southampton are one of the teams reportedly interested in signing Celtic midfielder Tom Rogic this summer. The Sydney Morning Herald report that both Southampton and Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester are looking to sign him in what could be a record-breaking deal. Celtic are said to value Rogic between £15 million and £32 million, with the player still having four years remaining on his current deal. Should Rogic complete a move for such a price, it could eclipse the £20 million that Parma paid for Mark Bresciano and he would break the record for the highest transfer fee paid for an Australian player.

Mark Diemers (born 11 October 1993) is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Fortuna Sittard. Diemers formerly played for FC Utrecht and SC Cambuur and moved to De Graafschap on loan in January 2016. In May 2016 he joined the club on a permanent basis.

Scottish Premiership champions Celtic should consider reigniting their interest in Samir Memisevic. The 6ft 1in defender has impressed for FC Groningen during the last two seasons in the Eredivisie . A move away from Parkhead would leave Celtic exposed at the back unless they sign a quality cover.

The report claims that the Hoops have been ‘compiling information’ on Diemers, who scored seven goals this season.

Add to that his seven assists from midfield, Diemers makes for an attractive prospect for the Scottish champions.

Diemers was among Sittard’s best players in the Dutch league this season as they battled bravely against relegation to the second tier.

He started his senior career coming through at Utrecht but has also spent time on loan at various Dutch clubs.
