The agent of Moroccan attacking midfielder Sofiane Boufal has revealed that Southampton rejected offers for the player in the European summer.
Boufal, 24, joined the Saints from Lille in August 2016 and went on to rack up 29 appearances and two goals across all competitions in his first season in England.
Last weekend he scored a superb goal against West Bromwich Albion to remind fans of his ability, and in the wake of fresh buzz over the player, agent Yvan Le Mee spoke about the bids Southampton brushed off in the last window.
"In August we had clubs like Inter Milan, Fiorentina and Celta Vigo, who know what they are doing when it comes to buying players who would have liked to buy him at all costs,” Le Mee told SFR Sport.
"But Southampton said no. And now he proves he is one who can win points."
Boufal will hope to feature for the Saints when they play away to Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League on Sunday, 29 October.
