Southampton closing in on Euro 2016 wonderkid

Southampton are in advanced talks over a deal for Ferencvaros midfielder Adam Nagy, according to L’Equipe.

The Saints are in a period of rebuilding after losing manager Ronaldo Koeman to Everton, Sadio Mane to Liverpool and Victor Wanyama to Tottenham.

New boss Claude Puel has already replaced Mane with Norwich’s Nathan Redmond and is now reportedly eyeing Nagy as the perfect replacement for Wanyama.

Nagy, 21, impressed heavily for Hungary at Euro 2016 and Southampton are supposedly hopeful of completing a deal for the highly-rated wonderkid, despite interest from Marseille and Benfica.

It is not yet known how much Southampton will be paying for the defensive midfielder, but Transfermarkt.com value him at just £1.13m.

In the three games Nagy appeared in during Euro 2016, he created two chances, completed five interceptions, achieved a very impressive 90% pass completion rate and completed 100% of his attempted take-ons.

Nagy has made 26 first team appearances for Ferencvaros since breaking in to the side in 2015, and has been capped 11 times by Hungary.
