Hasenhuttl’s misplacing his transfer priorities with pursuit of winger Danjuma

According to Voetbal International, Southampton have joined the race for Club Brugge winger Arnaut Danjuma.

What’s the deal, then?

It was recently reported that the 22-year-old was ‘getting ready for a transfer’ and that Spurs were interested in him.

However, the same article stated it would take some time for a deal to get over the line between Tottenham and the Belgian side.

And now it is thought Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men could snap up the Dutchman, although his price tag is yet unknown.

The former NEC Nijmegen player only moved to Brugge in the summer of last year, but is already said to be attracting interest from major outfits in England, Spain and Italy.

Saints’ money could be better spent elsewhere

The youngster’s record in the Jupiler Pro League will hardly blow you away – six goals and four assists in 24 appearances during the previous campaign.

In fact, his only real breakthrough season came in the second tier of Dutch football where he bagged 11 goals and 17 assists in 28 games.

It is by no means guaranteed then that the PSV youth team player will hit the ground running at St Mary’s, so should Hasenhuttl bother adding yet another attacking player to his squad?

With the signatures of Moussa Djenepo, Che Adams and Danny Ings already having been completed this summer, there are undoubtedly areas which need strengthening more than on the flanks and upfront – like at centre-half.

The Mirror’s live transfer blog (July 2, 13:29) have linked defender Jack Stephens with a move to Aston Villa, while Wesley Hoedt is someone who, according to The Telegraph, could also be leaving south coast in the window.

If that is to be the case, it is critical Hasenhuttl turns his attention to filling the void in the middle of defence, especially considering they conceded the sixth-highest number of goals in the Premier League last year.
