Southampton winger Kamaldeen Sulemana has confirmed he wants to leave Southampton as he tries to force a move out of St Mary’s.

The Athletic’s Jacob Tanswell has confirmed that the 21-year-old wants to leave the Championship side, but they won’t accept any offers below his release clause of £30 million.

Everton remain interested in signing Sulemana as they aim to add another winger to their ranks before the closure of the transfer window on Friday night.

However, any potential deal for the Ghanian may hinge on the departures of Alex Iwobi and Demarai Gray, who both have interest ahead of the deadline.

Would Sulemana be a good option for Sean Dyche’s side?

Everton desperately need to recruit players in attack this summer, with goals, creativity and an injection of pace an absolute must for Sean Dyche’s side.

Sulemana has pace in abundance and also has an eye for goal, as he scored twice in 18 appearances for the Saints in the Premier League before suffering relegation.

The 21-year-old could be seen as an alternative to Leeds United’s Wilfred Gnonto who has made a u-turn on his future and now wants to stay and help the club return to the top flight at the first attempt.

Everton were also linked with Sulemana before he joined Southampton, but their relegation to the Championship could prove to be helpful in Dyche’s pursuit of a pacey winger.

The Ghanaian is a very talented player, however, the £30 million fee is very steep for someone who is currently playing in England’s second tier.

Dyche and his team need to negotiate with the Saints for the winger, but they must be quick, with less than three days of the window left.
