According to a Foot Mercato journalist Dahbia Hattabi, Saints are one of the teams chasing the Tunisian international this summer.
Twitter: Leicester, Southampton et l’Inter ont un oeil sur Aymen Abdennour (Valence). Mais aucune offre concrète pour le moment. (@DahbiaHattabi)
Abdennour was tipped for big things during his time with Toulouse in France, but hasn’t quite had the desired impact since his big move to Valencia.
However, this doesn’t appear to have halted interest in his services this summer, with Saints and the Foxes both linked with a move for him.
The 27-year-old made just 14 appearances for the La Liga outfit last term, so he could be keen to secure a move that will guarantee him consistent game time next season.
Saints already have a plethora of central defensive options at their disposal but with speculation mounting regarding Virgil van Dijk’s future, it’s interesting to see more links to an established defender.
