Southampton want fleet-footed Bundesliga attacker: A smashing move by the Saints?

Turkish young starlet Emre Mor is apparently on the radar of Southampton FC and is being tipped for a move away from the Signal Iduna Park. The youngster has often been left frustrated and discontent with his lack of game time with the BVB this past season and is seemingly on the hunt for the same and could move away from the club.

The Saints are reported to be interested in offering the former Nordsjaelland player with a loan move to St. Mary’s Stadium and the move could materialise if both the clubs could come to a mutual agreement.

The Turkish International has found it difficult to break through the star-studded midfield of Dortmund and a possible move to the St Mary’s could help in the youngster’s development and growth as he would get the much-needed game time.

Player stats

The 19-year old had featured 19 times in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund last season although only 6 of them were first team starts, hence, the frustration and desperation for a move.

The player managed to score one goal and assist three during his time at BVB. Although he got only a handful of starts with the German club, the Turkish International showed glimpses and spark with the ball in the midfield and many experts believe that the player has immense potential to develop if provided with the time.

The player’s vision and dribbling abilities are quite impressive and his ability to beat a man has been well documented as he was once called the Turkish Messi in his country.

But the player is still far from being a finished product and needs to better his ball control and defensive awareness. Certainly two important features required in any good midfielder.

What’ll he offer the club?

The player has the potential and talent to be one of the best creative midfielders in Europe but given his age and present form, he has much to develop and learn under an able guidance. With Southampton’s current situation and overall scenario, it is hard to say how much of the player’s true capability can be extracted.

No doubt the player has the speed and vision to give Southampton the extra edge and also the versatility to deploy him in the midfield, but still one must understand that the player is on a learning curve and should be given some time to settle in.

Certainly a dynamic youngster, he does have the qualities to thrive in the more open Premier League but it would be too early to make any premature assumptions.
