Reports in Greece, from Sportime, have claimed that Greek giants Olympiakos are looking to sign Southampton forward Sofiane Boufal.

The Superliga side join a number of clubs linked with the 26-year-old, who has been rumoured as a possible target for La Liga club Real Betis in recent days.

Boufal is widely believed to be one of a number of players at risk of leaving the Saints this summer, as manager Ralph Hassenhuttl attempts to clear the books whilst raising funds for his own summer transfer targets.

Born in France but a Moroccan international, Boufal arrived at St Mary’s from Lille in 2016 for a fee of around £16 million and would still likely fetch a decent amount should he be sold now.

The attacking midfielder has made 70 top-flight appearances for the club since his arrival, although he did spend the 2018/19 season on loan at Celta Vigo in Spain.

Last season, Boufal made 20 Premier League appearances for Hassenhutl’s side, scoring once and making two assists.

Once regarded as a worthwhile member of the Southampton squad, it seems the Austrian boss has set his sights elsewhere and would now welcome bids for Boufal, as well as perhaps some of his other squad players.
