Southampton are positive of striking an offer for Reims centre-back Axel Disasi, according to a report.
Southampton are supposedly positive of winning the race to protect the services of Reims defender Axel Disasi
The 22- year-old delighted in an effective 2019-20 campaign in the heart of the Reims defence, yielding simply 21 goals from 28 games in the recently-abandoned Ligue 1 season.
Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur were both formerly credited with an interest in the 6ft 3in centre-back, however according to the Daily Mail, Southampton are leading the race for Disasi’s signature.
The report declares that Arsenal have actually ended their interest as they prepare to invite William Saliba back to the Emirates this summer, and Southampton’s players are unwinded over the club’s transfer strategies after their 10% wage deferment.
Disasi’s present offer at Reims will end next summer, and the defender will apparently cost in the region of ₤13 m.
