Southampton are on the verge of retaining the services of Stade Brestois youngster Ibrahima Diallo according to several reports.
Diallo is expected to be announced on Sunday with the France U21 international's medical scheduled to be completed in the next 24 hours.
The youngster registered one assist in 22 appearances across all competitions for Stade Brest last season before the season was called off due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, the Saints had first targeted Toulouse midfielder Ibrahim Sangare but the deal fail through as he secured a move to Eredivisie side PSV.
In a press conference on Wednesday, Hassenhutl highlighted his desire to bring in more signings before the close of the summer transfer window.
“I think there are some other alternatives where we are still keen that they are coming to us. If it’s on loan or permanent. I think we know we need a few ones. One or two minimum, maybe three.”
