Southampton Eyeing This 30 Y/O German Winger: The Lost Piece In Their Attacking Jigsaw?

Southampton received a major boost in their pursuit of German midfield, Nicolai Muller when reports surfaced that Hamburger SV are reluctant to offer him a contract extension.

After being sidelined with an anterior cruciate ligament tear, Muller has since not featured for Hamburger SV and is currently recovering for a quick return to the pitch. He injured himself while celebrating his goal in a 1-0 win against Augsburg in August.

Pumped after breaking the deadlock, Muller broke into a frenzy of spins with a final awkward landing on a jump, which caused him to sustain the injury.

He has been ruled out for 7 months.

The 30-year-old’s contract will end after the 2017-2018 season as he can be approached for pre-contract agreement as soon as the January transfer window opens. Southampton might have to get into a tussle with West Ham United, who are also eager to secure Muller’s signature. However, Hamburger SV might be ready to let go of Muller for nothing less than £8 Million in January.

Muller has played 3 seasons for Hamburger SV with 82 appearances and 16 goals. He made his debut for the German national team against Ecuador in Florida. He has been crucial for the Die Rothason side with his swift feet and attacking prowess.

Muller has been in the Bundesliga all his career, making his debut for Greuther Furth II in 2006.

Sitting at just 5ft 8inches, Nicolai Muller is an agile attacker with quick feet and seasoned dribbling skills. With a keen eye for finishing and a capable defensive work rate, the German might fit well into the Premier League.

Southampton will benefit well with the German talent in the team, providing depth to their squad. He might also be a very good addition to the side and help them they secure a spot high up in the league table this season with his swift skills and ability to score goals. He will be joined by the likes of Soufiane Boufal, Dusan Tadic and Nathan Redmond.

The 30-year-old winger has been one of the effective yet underrated players in the Bundesliga. A move to the South Coast might help him to get in the limelight and secure an important role in the Saints’ lineup with him entering the last stages of his career.

Right now, as the German recovers from his wounds, he can consider his options for his career in the near future. A move to the Premier League will not only get him a higher wage bill, but might just be right move to challenge himself more as a professional footballer.
