Leverkusen eyes Tella signing, filling gap after winger's Villa move
Posted : 16 August 2023
Reports from both English and German sources indicate that Bayer Leverkusen is keen on securing the signing of Southampton winger Nathan Tella, who might be leaving Southampton in this transfer window due to interest from the German Bundesliga club.
Leverkusen is eyeing Tella as a potential replacement for Moussa Diaby, who transferred to Aston Villa for a record fee of around €55 million.
Tella, having demonstrated his prowess with 17 goals in 39 appearances for Burnley during his loan spell in the Championship last season, offers versatility by playing across the forward positions.
Southampton declined Burnley's bid to acquire him permanently, and with Tella's contract set to expire in 2025, Leverkusen's interest could mark a significant move in his career.
