Saints battle West Ham in bid to sign Muller.
Wednesday, 5th Jul 2017 18:42 by Arron Sanders

Saints are reportably battllng with West Ham for the services of Nicolai Muller from Hamburg, Arron Sanders runs the rule over the deal.


Southampton are keen on signing Nicolai Muller from Hamburg, but face stiff competition from the Hammers according to a report by SportBild.

The two clubs are joined by German pair Wolfsburg and Schalke in their pursuit, but Hamburg have made it clear publicly that they are reluctant to sell. They want a further season from the winger.

The problem for Hamburg, is that Muller only has a year remaining on his contract. So, despite a general wish to keep the player they risk losing him for free if they don't sell now.

The report states that the Premier league duo have found the price they’ll sell Muller at, which is between €8-10m, which is a small amount of money for Premier League clubs.

The 29 year old made 25 Bundesliga appearances last season ending it with 5 goals and six assists to his name, reasonable stats but not hugely stand out numbers.

This could all be ploy by the players agent to get him a good contract renewal offer, or genuine Southampton interest. At such a reasonable fee, and a deal is reachable for either premier league club.

The rumour mill is in full flow during the pre-season and names will continue to be linked with our club, It remains to be seen which if any become concrete offers.

More silly paper talk. By the time the transfer window closes there will have been a hundreds of these so called "interested in signing" rumours. I'm sure the little black box will spit out names that will surprise even the expert newspaper people. I don't know about you but I'm excited to find out who the actual new boys will be.

Saints should have no interest in a 29-year-old who hasn't previously played in the EPL.

Why do we always face "stiff opposition" for a player Nick. Since most of us have never heard of this bloke chances are Hammers fans are equally in the dark and their club have not the slightest interest in him. They have been linked with even more players than Liverpool & ManUre but unless they have actually found a magic money tree they are in no better a position to buy in the market than us.
