Sdna.GR claim Southampton are interested in signing Olympiacos’ Norwegian right back Omar Elabdellaoui in this transfer window.
Southampton are likely to be in the market to bring in players this month and it seems the Norway international is an option.
It’s reported new Saints manager Ralph Hassenhütl has identified him as a potential signing, but the Premier League club have yet to make an offer to Olmypiacos.
Elabdellaoui played for Hull City under Marco Silva during the 2016/17 season and has been linked with a return to Premier League in past transfer windows.
The Greek website says Hassenhütl has known him since his days playing in the Bundesliga and is looking to sign him to bolster his club’s chances of survival.
The Norwegian right back has been a regular player for the Greek giants this season and has played 21 games in all competitions this campaign, scoring two goals.
The 27-year old is under contract at Greek club until June 2021.
