Southampton have been given hope of signing Leonardo Bittencourt from SV Werder Bremen, with it explained ‘no player is unsellable’ for the German club.

DeichStube cover the situation around the player today and how despite Werder Bremner insisting there’s nothing going on, they are ‘always willing to negotiate’.

They explain that opinions at the club are divided on the midfielder, who has been a part of their fall and rise back in recent years.

Sometimes he is loved for his extroverted style of play and sometimes he is criticised for him lack effectiveness and these conversations are held internally and externally.

That is why the question arises about his future this summer, particularly as Southampton have made it clear they would like to sign him.

“We have not received anything. That’s why we are not currently dealing with the topic,” director Clemens Fritz told the website when asked on the matter.

But that is something the head of professional football is expected to say, and the reality is that he would ‘immediately consider an appropriate offer’ for Bittencourt.

That’s because ‘no player is unsellable’ as far as Werder are concerned and they are ‘always willing to negotiate’ if the transfer fee is right.

Thus, the opportunity is there for Southampton if they want it, with Werder more than happy to talk if the money is right.
