​Strasbourg boss Laurey admits Spurs, Southampton target Simakan could depart

Strasbourg manager Thierry Laurey admits the likes of Mohamed Simakan could leave this summer.

Several clubs are chasing the player, including Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Everton, per sources around Europe.

Simakan is rated at £13 million, and RMC Sport have linked him with Everton.

"Him and others!" Laurey responded when asked if he wants to keep the 20-year-old, per HITC.

"Today, we have a coherent team so I don't want to let anyone go. But if someone has to leave us, we will adapt."

Clubs such as Strausbourg will struggle financially due to COVID-19, and selling one or two prized assets in the summer may be their only option.
