Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to give his reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Everton winger Ademola Lookman.
According to The Daily Star (print edition, page 47, Tuesday, January 8, 2019), Southampton want to sign Lookman from Premier League rivals Everton in the January transfer window (click here to read more).
Lookman worked with Southampton manager Hasenhuttl during his time on loan at RB Leipzig during the second half of last season.
The England Under-21 international winger has struggled for playing time for Everton so far this season, and the Saints could do with a player of the youngster’s quality and skills in their team.
Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to give his reaction to speculation regarding Lookman - who is valued at €18.8 million (£16.96m) by the CIES Football Observatory.

Don’t think it is a silly fee...he’s a quality player and proved himself in bundesliga...would be a great signing.— Charlie Mercer (@Charlie_Mercer_) January 8, 2019
He was decent when on loan at Ralph's RB Leipzig. So yes from me.— Indo Saints Supporters (@SouthamptonFCID) January 9, 2019
£30m sounds like an incredible price for someone that had scored 1 goal this season— Adrian Sutherland (@AdersSutherland) January 9, 2019
We were linked when he was at Charlton, so I'm guessing alot of research has gone into him, prob went to Everton for the £— Stuart Vahid (@StuartVahid) January 9, 2019
Yes from me, Quick, direct... would deffo suit Ralph's way of playing.— Nick (@WiltsSaint) January 9, 2019
Good player, fits the style but Couldn’t see Everton selling cheap.— Adam Baker (@adzbaker6) January 9, 2019
Won't happen, but otherwise 100% yes.— Martin St. Hill (@MartinStHill) January 9, 2019
I could see Saints using some of the salary cleared from Davis and Gabbi to cover a 5 month loan. Lookman gets gametime and experience before returning. SaintsFC get more creativity and more chance to stay up. We won't want too many big new contracts as still in real danger.— SaintOxford (@SaintOxford) January 9, 2019
Unless Lookman pushes for a move to be with Ralph I can't see it being permanent. Loan could happen— Saint Harris (@LHarrisSFC) January 9, 2019
