Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has revealed he will likely make an approach for Werder Bremen winger Eljero Elia, reports BBC
The Saints are threadbare on options in the forward positions, and with Jay Rodriguez’s return having suffered a recent setback, the South Coast outfit need another player or two – especially with Sadio Mane set to leave to play in the Africa Cup of Nations.
“He is one of the players on our list to bring in in January. It’s still not done but yes, I am interested in the player. We lose Sadio Mane in January for the Africa Cup, (so) we need another player for that position and he is a good option. If he does sign for us, it will first be as a loan deal,” said Koeman.
