According to Football Insider, Southampton and Brentford are among the clubs keeping tabs on Angers star Angelo Fulgini. A transfer battle could ensue for the midfielder in the January window, with the French side reportedly open to letting him leave.

The report also posted quotes from the player’s agent, Paul Tait, who confirmed interest from European clubs, although Fulgini might be interested in moving to the Premier League.

These clubs have been looking for a midfielder to bolster their squad in the January transfer window, and Fulgini might be the player. Furthermore, his versatility could be very useful for any of these clubs.
When the January window approaches, interest in the French midfielder could intensify, possibly sparking a transfer battle between the Premier League clubs. Fulgini, 25, has plenty to offer and could prove to be a smart signing for whichever club he decides to join.
