Southampton now look set to hijack Manchester City’s talented youngster Sam Edozie’s transfer to Bayer Leverkusen, per reports from Fabrizio Romano.
The saints have completed the signing of two players from Manchester City’s Elite Division squad – Romeo Lavia and Gavin Bazunu. They had also returned for 19 year old Liam Delap but have seen their £16M bid rejected as Man City only want a loan move for the young striker. Now, they are back and want to secure a move for 19 year old Edozie.
Although, Leverkusen had agreed a deal with Man City for the player, Southampton have made a late attempt to sign the player and they believe they can acquire their man.
Edozie looks poised to exit the Manchester club this summer, but it remains to be seen where he would end up eventually.
