A couple of weeks ago, we covered a story from RMC Sport in France claiming that Southampton were interested in Bordeaux’s François Kamano.
This came after an interview the radio station conducted with the club’s new owner, Joe DeGraso, who made it very clear the Guinea international wasn’t going anywhere in January.
However, that doesn’t mean the Saints won’t try, and it wasn’t really surprising to see their name, alongside Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the list of teams having sent scouts to watch Bordeaux play Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday (courtesy of Girondins4Ever).
Mark Hughes’ side have struggled for goals so far this season, and the addition of a prolific winger (seven goals in 14 league games this season) could go a long way in turning their season around.
As for Wolves, this is the second time they’ve travelled to see Bordeaux this month, having done so two weekends ago to view their game against Caen.
At the time, we stated that while Kamano surely was of interest, wingers aren’t a priority at Molineux, which is why we put forward the Aurélien Tchouaméni option.
The 18-year-old midfielder started and finished the game against Slavia Prague, meaning he picked up his 15th appearance of the season, having promoted to the first-team over the summer.
It would make more sense for Wolves to be keeping an eye on him for the future than focusing on the star, François Kamano.
Then again, can you really have too many attacking options? After all, Manchester City seem to be doing alright with all of theirs.
