Two days ago, we relayed news from Turkey that Besiktas are interested in Mohamed Elyounoussi.
The winger’s playing time at Southampton was limited last season.
According to VG in Norway, the situation is unlikely to change during the 2019/20 season and Moussa Djenepo’s arrival only makes it more difficult for him.
Elyounoussi’s desire is to play regular football. His representative is currently in talks with Besiktas, Sevilla and Celta Vigo.
With four years left on his contract at St Mary’s Stadium, the player is open to the idea of leaving on a dry loan or on a temporary deal with an option to buy, or even a permanent transfer.
It sounds like he just wants out!
The Premier League transfer window closes on Thursday and even after that, he could still move to Turkey or Spain, since the windows there close on September 2nd.
Meanwhile, Norway’s TV2 asked Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhüttl if Elyounoussi will be at the club beyond the transfer window.
He said, “I do not know. We want to give everyone the chance to play. If he does not feel comfortable sitting on the bench, or maybe in the stands sometimes… Then we should find a solution.”
Hassenhüttl’s comments could come as a welcome boost for clubs interested in signing Elyounoussi.
