Get French Football News can exclusively report that Premier League side Southampton have stepped up negotiations to sign Nice full back Timothee Kolodziejczak. A first concrete offer from Southampton is expected imminently for the young 22 year old Frenchman.
West Ham United are also very interested in the player, and even had an initial €3 million offer rejected by Nice. The Hammers are expected to try again with an improved offer in the coming weeks, and there could be a big tussle over the signature of the player before the transfer window shuts.
