Southampton are reportedly keeping a close eye on many left-backs across the Europe.
The reports in England suggested that Southampton are linked with shock Jayden Oosterwolde move.
Parma reportedly paid Twente 3 million euros for Oosterwolde earlier this year. The 21-year-old has a valid contract with Parma until June 2026.
In 12 appearances for Parma, Oosterwolde has managed to score one goal.
He has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Netherlands.
Jayden Oosterwolde has been in impressive form for Parma this season and it looks like he caught the eye of many European clubs including Southampton.
Nathan Jones wants to sign a new left-back and Oosterwolde is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Jones is a known admirer of the player and is reportedly keen on the idea of bringing him this winter.
The Saints are desperate to make an impact in the winter transfer window.
Jayden Oosterwolde is a skilled left-back who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch.
According to the report, “Jones will use the break for the World Cup to focus on his new team’s strengths and weaknesses. The main and only aim will be to ensure Southampton’s survival. One perceived weakness in the side comes in the full-back positions. As a result, Jones is reportedly already targeting a move for Parma left-back Jayden Oosterwolde. The 21-year-old started his career with FC Twente but moved to the Serie B side in January. He’s made a big impression there and Forza Parma reports the Dutchman is wanted by Jones as his first signing on the south coast.”
Euro Football Rumours
If Southampton can agree on a fee with Parma, the deal should be easy to complete.
The Serie B club is eager to keep the left-back beyond the current campaign, but the player may look to take the next step in his career.
Good signing for Southampton?
If Southampton and Jones are seriously considering a left-back, Oosterwolde could also prove to be a smart option.
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Oosterwolde will be an ideal choice for Jones as he ticks all the right boxes in terms of what he demands from his defenders.
It will be interesting to see what happens when Southampton come calling for Oosterwolde this winter.
