Southampton failed with a bid for Wolfsburg defender Felix Uduokhai earlier this month, it has been revealed.
Saints landed Kevin Danso from Augsburg in the final hours of the Premier League transfer window – but not before an attempt was made for Uduokhai.
Kicker says Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is a big fan of Uduokhai and a €15m offer was tabled to VfL.
However, VfL rejected the proposal, so Saints turned to Danso.
Uduokhai is now interesting Augsburg.
The player continues to flirt with the Nigeria National Team unlike 1899 Hoffenheim’s Kevin Akpoguma and Hertha Berlin’s Jordan Torunarigha.
The Annaberg-Buchholz native has 10 caps in total for Germany’s U19, U20 and U21 teams.
