Saints learn asking price for target Victor Osimhen

Saints learn asking price for target Victor Osimhen Southampton will have to pay a fee in the region of €12m to land VfL Wolfsburg striker Victor Osimhen this summer, according to Le Soir, cited by Sport Witness. The 20-year-old is also being monitored by Javi Gracia’s Watford, Gennaro Gattuso’s AC Milan and Christophe Galtier’s Lille ahead of a possible move. Osimhen has spent the season on loan in Belgium’s Pro League with Charleroi and has found the back of the net on 17 occasions in all competitions this season, as well as providing four assists. That form has led to the interest around the talented youngster, with Egyptian club Pyramids FC ready to offer €6m back in January.

Southampton may have to spend a fee worth £20 million if they are to lure Jack Clarke away from Leeds United this summer.

The Saints have been linked with a swoop for the promising winger in recent times, with reports indicating that a £10 million bid could be enough to convince Marcelo Bielsa’s side into a sale.

However, contrasting claims from The Mirror have stated that Leeds are unwilling to negotiate their youngster’s departure unless their valuation of double the aforementioned price is met.

The 18-year-old enjoyed a positive breakthrough season at Elland Road. He scored two goals and chipped in with two assists from his 22 appearances in the Championship.

Although Leeds failed to secure promotion to the Premier League ahead of next season, Clarke was undoubtedly one of their brightest players, and there is a consensus that he has the potential to be a player of the highest quality.

Tottenham Hotspur are understood by The Mirror to also be in the race to sign the winger from Leeds in the current transfer window.

Rangers are reportedly leading Southampton in the race to sign Charlton Athletic’s Joe Aribo after opening talks with the midfielder. According to the Scottish Daily Mail, cited by Football Scotland, Steven Gerrard’s side have held talks with the 23-year-old ahead of a possible move to Ibrox this summer. Aribo, who played a key role in the Addicks’ promotion-winning side under Lee Bowyer last season, is out of contract at the Valley next month. The highly-rated midfielder has been offered a new deal to remain with the club, however, with the Saints, Celtic, Rangers and Aston Villa all interested in the player, Aribo has yet to agree to a new deal.
