Soccer Football – Champions League – FC Basel vs Benfica – St. Jakob-Park, Basel, Switzerland – September 27, 2017 Basel’s Dimitri Oberlin with coach Raphael Wicky REUTERS/Arnd Wiegmann
According to reports in The Sun, Oberlin could be available for £20m and considering the potential he has and the big impact he could make in the Premier League – as well as filling a big void in the Southampton side – that could prove to be a bargain.
The fee would break Saints’ club-record, but the striker would fit into their transfer philosophy of being a young player who can develop at St Mary’s and then go on to increase his value, and they would be mad to not try and beat Newcastle to his signature in the New Year.
