Sofiane Boufal

Southampton have broken their transfer record to sign Moroccan attacking midfielder Sofiane Boufal from French side Lille for £16 million. Boufal, 22, scored 11 goals last season to help Lille finish fifth in Ligue 1 and qualify for the Europa League. Southampton’s previous transfer record was the £15m they paid Roma for forward Dani Osvaldo in 2013. Boufal is the latest summer arrival as new manager Claude Puel shapes his team following several departures.
