Southampton among sides keeping tabs on Bristol City trio

Published

on

Bristol City trio Daniel Bentley, Antoine Semenyo and Tyreeq Bakinson have all been watched by Premier League side Southampton, according to Bristol Live.

The trio are all believed to be on the radar of several top-flight sides, with Wolves, Bournemouth and Norwich all present at Ashton Gate to watch them in action recently.

But it is Southampton who are all believed to be the keenest, with the Saints eyeing up Bentley as they look to bolster their goalkeeping options.

Bentley has featured in 36 of City’s 38 Championship fixtures this season, and despite making mistakes against Bournemouth and Rotherham, he has still been one of their standout performers this term.

City youngsters Semenyo and Bakinson are also said to be on Southampton’s radar.

Semenyo has scored five goals across 43 appearances in all competitions this season, chipping in with seven assists.

Bakinson, who spent last season on loan with Plymouth Argyle in League Two, has made 16 starts in the Championship this term.

Han-Noah Massengo has also been mentioned as a potential target for the Premier League, as the Robins look to keep hold of their best players ahead of the summer.

The Verdict

Southampton are a big club who are always on the lookout for young, upcoming talent.

Semenyo and Bakinson fit the bill as they are two young players with potential. Semenyo has had 12 goal contributions this season, and has played a lot of games in all competitions.

Bentley has been a good player at Championship level for a number of seasons now, and at the age of 27, he will be eager to make the step up.

Whether regular first-team football would be guaranteed for any of these three at St. Mary’s, though, remains to be seen.
