After joining from VFL Bochum in July 2022, Armel Bella-Kotchap made an immediate impact

and was included in the Germany World Cup team a few months later.

In contrast, Charly Alcaraz, who joined from Racing Club in January, was one of the team’s few

bright spots in front of goal at the end of the campaign.

With only 22 and 21 years old, respectively, Bella-Kotchap and Alcaraz should be ready for

another chance to compete in the Premier League with Saints.

After suffering a shoulder injury that hindered his stay in England while winning the

Eredivisie with PSV, the German defender underwent successful surgery.

Alcaraz was a member of the team that won the Italian Cup and spent the second half of the season with one of the

top teams in Europe.

Nevertheless, the two combined for just 540 minutes in the league, and their stock did not rise in value over the previous year as anticipated.

It would not have been out of place for Saints to demand a valuation of £30 million for Bella-Kotchap and even more for Alcaraz last summer.

Despite rumours of interest from teams in England and Europe, it seems like they would have to be quite fortunate to agree on a sum in that range for either player right now.

Alcaraz is said to be of great interest to Tottenham Hotspur, while Newcastle United has also been mentioned as a possible suitor this summer.

At the same time, Bella-Kotchap has been getting the indicative ‘could leave this summer’ agent-led treatment on Fabrizio Romano’s account.
