Southampton keen on Harry Winks and Moussa Dembele

Southampton eye double swoop for Harry Winks and Moussa Dembele, while Giovani Lo Celso could be in line for Villarreal return… and Che Adams has caught the eye of Nottingham Forest

  • Southampton have shown an interest in Harry Winks and Moussa Dembele
  • Giovani Lo Celso could also follow Winks out the exit door at Tottenham
  • Villarreal may look to bring Lo Celso back to Spain after his loan spell last term
  • Nottingham Forest are considering making a move for Scotland’s Che Adams 

Southampton are keen on a move for Harry Winks, who along with Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele has been left out of Tottenham’s tour to South Korea.

Lo Celso could also be in line for a return to Villarreal, where he was on loan last season. 

He helped Unai Emery’s men into the semi-finals of the Champions League, and having impressed in LaLiga, Villarreal may look to bring Lo Celso back to the club for another spell in Spain.

Meanwhile, Winks started just nine top-flight matches for Spurs last term as Antonio Conte preferred a midfield pairing of Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur in the second half of the campaign.

With Tottenham bringing in Yves Bissouma this summer, plus Oliver Skipp returning from injury, Winks is now surplus to requirements, and looks set to move on from his boyhood club.

Southampton are keen to bolster their squad in the middle of the park, and have identified Winks as a transfer target.

The Saints are also interested in Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

Dembele could come in for Che Adams, who has caught the attention of Nottingham Forest

The Frenchman had an outstanding campaign for the Ligue 1 outfit last term, netting 21 league goals, but he has just entered the final year of his deal at the club. Southampton could look to take advantage of his current contract situation.

It could be a case of one in, one out up front at St Mary’s this summer as Nottingham Forest are considering a move for Che Adams.

Adams joined Southampton in 2019, and has scored 20 Premier League goals in his three seasons at the club.

He has been unable to hit double figures in a single league campaign for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men, but has done enough to catch the eye of Forest, who could turn to him to spearhead their attack as they prepare to return to the Premier League for the first time this century.
