Southampton fans react to links with Celtic star Kyogo Furuhashi
A number of Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports claiming that they want Celtic star Kyogo Furuhashi.
What’s the story?
Kyogo has made an outstanding start to life at Celtic. He has scored eight goals in his first 11 appearances in all competitions.
His movement is absolutely outstanding. And some of his touches are simply delicious.
If the 26-year-old was a little more clinical in front of goal, he could have easily had a considerably better tally. If his finishing improves over the coming months, Ange Postecoglou will have an unbelievable option on his hands.
But of course, with that will come interest. And the links with a move away have already started.
According to Calciomercato, Southampton have set their sights on the Japan international.
It seems to be an obvious rumour. The Saints have signed a number of Celtic players in recent years. And they also had a couple of Japanese internationals in their ranks in the last decade.
The reaction to the reports has been mixed. Certainly, there are several who would absolutely love to see Kyogo join the club.

However, others are not convinced that there is any chance of a deal. He has only recently arrived at Parkhead.
Southampton meanwhile, are rarely amongst the big spenders in the Premier League these days. And Celtic will surely demand a huge fee if they are going to sell Kyogo.
With that in mind, here is what some of the Southampton fans make of the reports linking the Saints with a future move for Kyogo…
I wouldn’t be too concerned about Saints interest, if I was a Celtic fan. We’re not the same club that bought Van Dijk, Wanyama and Forster off them…..our levels of wealth and ambition have nosedived
