Olympiakos want to sign Southampton midfielder Sofiane Boufal

Southampton player Sofiane Boufal could be on the move from Saint Mary’s Stadium this summer, with Olympiakos the latest side to be keen to secure his services.

The 26-year-old has failed to realize his potential at the Saints since joining the Premier League side from Lille back in 2016.

And now it is reported by Hampshire Live that the midfielder could be on his way out, with the Super League Greece side joining Real Betis for the signature of the talented Morocco international.

The report further says that the former Angers player is among those who could be sold this summer by Ralph Hasenhuttl, with the Austrian boss conceding ‘maybe he is one of them, yes’, to the question if Boufal could leave the club.

The Moroccan star made 20 appearances in the Premier League last season but failed to score any goal. He was left out completely by the manager in their first league match of the season against Crystal Palace.

It looks that the writing is on the wall for the 26-year-old at Saint Mary’s. However, he seems to have a choice, with Spain and Greece both attractive options for the player.

Boufal failed to make an impact for Southampton and it looks right that they want to offload him this summer.

They signed the player for a reported £16 million and if they can recoup some money now, then they should go for that.

Seeing that he is not likely to play for the team this season, a move looks a good decision for all parties.
