Saints sign replacement for Liverpool, Arsenal target

Saints sign replacement for Liverpool, Arsenal target”

Lazio sporting director Igli Tare announces that Dutch centre-back Wesley Hoedt will be joining Southampton "in the near future".

Inter have signalled they are willing to offload Ranocchia and have been shopping around for takers.

It was widely reported last week that the Saints had submitted a £15.5m ($19.9m) offer to sign Hoedt, a highly-rated 23-year-old who has already earned four senior global caps for the Netherlands.

Lazio have sold Wesley Hoedt to Southampton, according to the latest reports.

Spurs have already agreed a £42 million fee (a club-transfer record), reported by The Guardian, for Ajax's highly rated centre-back Davinson Sanchez, and therefore they would hardly move for another expensive defender this summer.

The defender has been training with the reserves since last month when he told Pellegrino of his desire to move and uncertainty remains over whether Southampton can actually afford to keep a £60m asset rotting in the stands all of next season.

Van Dijk was made to train on his own earlier this summer and found himself omitted from two pre-season trips overseas after voicing his desire to depart amid interest from Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City.

Hoedt, who has made four appearances for the Dutch national team, is under contract at Lazio until 2019.

"The decision to sell him was at his request because he wanted to be a guaranteed starter", Tare commented.

Now, former journalist McGarry is claiming that Liverpool are still some way ahead of Chelsea in the race for Van Dijk, despite Southampton's insistence that he is not for sale.

Lazio are now facing Serie A newboys SPAL in their opening League match of the new season.
