Southampton midfielder Alex Jankewitz has been away on international duty with Switzerland’s Under-21 side.
The 18-year-old came on as a substitute in the 3-0 wins over Georgia and Liechtenstein and has been on the lips of several Southampton supporters in recent days.
The teenager is reportedly on the radar of both Barcelona and Parma, who are thought to be monitoring his situation closely.
These Southampton fans have recently had their say on the midfielder, with plenty wanting Ralph Hasenhuttl to hand the youngster a first-team opportunity sooner rather than later.

Jankewitz, who joined the Saints from Swiss side Servette in the summer of 2018, was an unused substitute in three Premier League fixtures last season.
And if these Saints supporters get their wish, the teenager won’t have to wait too much longer until he represents the club at first-team level.
