⚽ Southampton battling Everton for Sporting Lisbon star Ruben Semedo ⚽



Sporting Lisbon defender Ruben Semedo is the subject of Premier League interest.


The Sun is reporting that both Southampton and Everton have watched the 22-year-old numerous times this season.


Saints boss Claude Puel sees Semedo as the perfect replacement for Jose Fonte, who left St Mary’s for West Ham United in January.


But former Southampton manager Ronald Koeman is also an admirer of the £20million-rated Portugal U21 international.


Italian giants AC Milan are also showing interest in Semedo who signed a new deal with Sporting earlier this month.
