Saints Target Undergoing Medical
Thursday, 28th Jun 2018 16:22
It is being reported that Basel attacker Mohamed Elyounoussi is this afternoon undergoing a medical and his signing for Saints is imminent.
Southampton are poised to sign FC Basel winger Mohamed Elyounoussi with the Norwegian international undergoing a medical at St Mary's, HITC Sport are reporting that he is in Southampton, quoting sources close to the club.
Saints and and German club Wolfsburg both agreed fees in the region of £17million with Basel for Elyounoussi earlier this week, but the player opted to move to the Premier League and seems to be St Mary's bound.
Elyounoussi scored 13 goals and provided 17 assists in 44 appearances for Basel last season, including a goal and a man-of-the match performance during Basel's 2-1 win over Manchester City in the Champions League in March.
There are those who have been bemoaning Saints lack of ambition of late and a lack of signings, but the sale of Dusan Tadic and replacing him with Elyounoussi seems to be a great piece of business, selling on a player in Tadic who has given us four years good service but will turn 30 soon and replacing him with an exciting young talent who will turn 24 on the eve of the coming Premier league season.

A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
