Southampton and West Ham keen on Filip Duricic


Sassuolo midfielder Filip Duricic is thought to be a target for Southampton and West Ham United this summer.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the Italian club have already received offers for the 29-year-old.

The Serbian attacking midfielder has just one year left on his current contract with the Italian club and it will be interesting to see if Southampton or West Ham can bring him back to the Premier League.

The 29-year-old has played in the Premier League before during a loan spell at Southampton back in 2016.

The report from Di Marzio adds that the 29-year-old is keen on staying in Italy beyond this summer.

The Sassuolo star picked up five goals and four assists in the Italian league this past season and he could prove to be a useful addition to the Southampton or West Ham attack.

Both teams could use more depth in the attacking department and it remains to be seen if they can lure the Serbian away from Italy for a reasonable price.

Duricic will be a free agent next summer and Sassuolo will be under pressure to sell him now. They will not want to lose him on a free transfer next year.

It will be interesting to see how the Serbian’s situation develops over the next few weeks. He is a versatile midfielder who can play in wide areas as well. He could prove to be a handy option for both Premier League clubs next year.
