Southampton and West Ham United are keeping an eye on Filip Đuričić’s situation at Sassuolo.

The 29-year-old first arrived in Italy when they signed him from Benfica in 2016. During his time with the Portuguese side, he had a loan spell with the Saints in the second half of the 2014/15 season.

Although he struggled to shine at St Mary’s, the attacking midfielder has drawn attention from Southampton, West Ham and others, mainly due to his contract situation with the Serie A side.

His contract runs down at the end of the current season and according to Calciomercato, ‘there is no agreement’ to extend it beyond 2022. This has ‘increased the list of clubs interested’ in the Serbia international.

Several Premier League clubs are following the player, including Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side and, ‘above all’, the Hammers.

Apart from the English duo, Shakhtar Donetsk must not be forgotten. Inter Milan, Napoli and AC Milan have thought of the player at different times over the past few years.

When describing Đuričić, Calciomercato state he is ‘a gift of talent’. He has two goals and an assist to his name this term, and can make one ‘last jump’ of his career when his contract with Sassuolo expires.
