Southampton have been linked with a move for AC Milan winger Petter Hauge recently and he could be a great addition to Ralph Hasenhutl’s side this summer.
What’s the word?
According to Italian football journalist Niccolo Shira, both Southampton and Udinese have shown interest in signing the Norwegian national team before next season.
Whether this will be a loan deal or a permanent deal for Hauge is not clear, but after its excellent form in 2020, Shira’s tweet responses make it clear that many Milan fans appreciate it and will be disappointed to see it. .
Would it be a good signature?
Since moving to Milan from FK Bodø / Glimt in October 2020, the 21-year-old has made 24 appearances for the Italian side, contributing five goals and one assist.
Not surprisingly, the excitement of Milan fans when he scored three goals and one assist in just five appearances in the Europa League in the last campaign, but he failed to make such a big impact in Serie A this season for the game of Stefano Pioli’s country.
Should Southampton sign Hague?
In 18 appearances in the high flight of Italy, the young man has two goals and no assists for his name, although 15 of these performances come from the bench, which suggests that he may have been underused at the San Siro.
Although Southampton already have a number of wings in their books, both Nathan Redmond and Musa Genepo are vying for goals and assists, so adding someone like Haug who impresses when given the opportunity can be a smart business. Saints.
The 21-year-old showed last season in Norway that he can be extremely dangerous in the final third, with 14 goals and 10 assists for his name in just 18 appearances, and while the Premier League will obviously be a step up for the 21-year-old, no it took him a long time to strike at Milan.
Hague’s impressive performances for club and country won over Borussia Dortmund sensation Erling Haaland, who was full of praise for him at the end of last year, saying:
“Haug is doing well and we are very good friends, he is a great talent. He has to keep working hard and play like that, he has a great career ahead of him. “
Therefore, Southampton may be able to take advantage of the fact that he is not getting much time to play in Milan this season and bring it this summer, as it could be a really exciting signing, whether he joins on loan or permanently.
