Premier League side Southampton are reportedly interested in AZ Alkmaar star Ridgeciano Haps.
Southampton have always managed their transfer policies seemingly well but it seems they bit more than they can chew this season as they fell off their high horse in the league.
There are widespread rumours that Ryan Bertrand could exit the side this summer as interests in him rises. Chelsea are leading the pack to sign the Three Lions star from St Mary’ Stadium. The Saints are already preparing the AZ Alkmaar star as his replacement.
The 23-year old Haps has played 30 games in the Eredivisie this term so Claude Puel feels he is ripe for the role.
L’Equipe claims same Southampton want to get Toulose striker Martin Braithwaite this summer. The 25-year old scored 11 goals in 34 Ligue 1 games but the Dane is being chased by the Saints and the Hammers. He would cost £8 million but the French side want to keep him. The Dane might be positively predisposed to a Premier League side though.
Same West Ham and Southampton are interested in Juventus star KwadwoAsamoah, according to TalkSport. The 28-year old has a contract with the Italian giants that runs until 2018 but both sides want him. Chelsea were linked with a move for him earlier in the season but the move never materialized. Juve may also ward off interests this time but the Ghana international would likely be keen on getting more chances after playing 23 times in all competitions this term.
Southampton could also lose defender Cuco Martina this summer and skipper Virgil van Dijk.
