Southampton in talks for club-record Sofiane Boufal transfer

Southampton are reportedly in negotiations to complete a club-record move for Lille attacker Sofiane Boufal, and the clubs are understood to be “close to agreeing a deal.”

That’s according to the Guardian, which reported the initial offer for Boufal is valued at £17 million, but the deal could eventually rise to €25 million (£21.5 million), showing the Saints mean business in this last week of the transfer window.

Morocco international Boufal only moved to Lille from Angers in January 2015, but the wide man has quickly earned rave reviews with the Ligue 1 outfit.
