Premier League side, Southampton, are interested in signing Nigeria international, Term Moffi, in the January transfer window to shore up their attacking front as they hope to avoid relegation at the end of the season.
The Saints are the fifth team with the worst scoring record this season only finding the back of the net 14 times in 16 games and sitting bottom of the log which has made getting a new striker a priority for the club’s front office.
The transfer window is expected to be open Sunday, January 1 and Southampton has identified the Nigerian striker as the solution to the club’s problems. Moffi has been in impressive form this season scoring 10 league goals from 15 appearances. Only Paris Saint-Germain duo, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have scored more goals than the Nigerian in the French League.
According to The Athletic, the Saints have been tracking the Super Eagles man since his time in Lithuania, playing for FK Kauno Zalgiris and FK Riteriai between 2017 to 2020.
Moffi’s goalscoring form has seen Lorient who have struggled to remain in the French topflight league in the last two seasons sit seventh in the league thanks to an impressive start to the season.
Moffi, who has been capped nine times by the national team, has also been a subject of transfer speculation from clubs in Italy, Spain and Turkey.
The Saints are without a win in their last five Premier League games.
