Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers are both interested in a January move for Atalanta youngster Dejan Kulusevski.
Kulusevski has been earning rave reviews for Parma, where he is spending the season on loan, with two goals and five assists in 12 games so far.
That’s earned him attention from around Europe, including the Premier League, with Corriere Della Sera reporting that both Wolves and Southampton are keen on the 19-year-old.
According to the newspaper, Inter are the club that are pressing hardest for Kulusevski’s signature, and will face competition should they attempt to sign him.
Manchester United are also aware of him, but they are not the only Premier League side as Southampton and Wolves are also hovering.
It seems those two clubs are the keenest, with it stated they are ready to offer €17-18m to sign the player.
That’s a price that Atalanta would seemingly reject, with Corriere Della Sera instead stating that the Serie A side are looking for €25m, a fee they would ‘gladly accept’, even if it was in the form of a loan with a right or redemption to buy at the end of it.
Such a deal would undoubtedly suit either Wolves or Southampton, with neither likely to be keen on spending €25m upfront in the January transfer window if they can avoid it.
