Southampton Chase Norwegian Right-Back

Southampton are understood to be in talks with Olympiacos over deal for Norwegian international right-back Omar Elabdellaoui.

The Sun claim Southampton have targeted the 27-year-old as a cut-price replacement for Cedric Soares following the Portugal international’s loan move to Inter Milan.

Saints are reportedly prepared to spend £4.5million on Elabdellaoui, who spent six months on loan at Hull City a couple of seasons ago.

They are looking to add pace at right-back for the second half of the season after Soares, one of the highest earners at the club, was allowed to leave on loan.

New boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has radically changed his team since arriving last month and getting the club out of the Premier League’s bottom three.
