Southampton want Pione Sisto as Sadio Mane’s replacement

Ronald Koeman is preparing for life after Sadio Mane, and it’s speculated that Southampton are already on the look-out for possible substitutes for Mane before the transfer window.

According to The Mirror, Southampton are considering bringing in Midtjylland’s Wide player Pione Sisto, while The Daily Mail alleges that Everton, Leicester City and West Ham United too are showing keen interest in him who might cost as high as £12m this transfer season.

Sisto, 21, was born in Uganda to parents who were Southern Sudanese, but is been seen as the next big thing, having hit 16 goals in 74 games for last season’s champions Midtjylland, and he has only played two matches so far for his country.

The Danish attacker displayed magnificent dribbling ability & pace in the two Europa League matches against Manchester United, and scored once in each leg – he is evidently hot in demand and Southampton clearly are competing with big players for his signature.

Sisto’s addition would further highlight Southampton’s brilliant scouting system and their ability to snap up hottest stars from European football. Koeman has previously stated how he wants Southampton to be competing at the highest level or he will walk away from St. Mary’s.

The club need to keep hold of their best players and look to bring in talented players before the start of 2016/17 season.
