Mohammed Salisu has attracted offers from several clubs with English Premier League outfit Southampton, having reportedly taken the lead by reportedly tabling down an offer of 10 million euros for the Ghanaians signature.

Players eligible to be named in the breakthrough XI of the season are those who made a significant impact in their debut season or their emergence as youngsters who were the revelations in the league.

Mohammed Salisu joined Real Valladolid as a youth player on a five-year deal in 2017.

In his first two seasons, he combined 41 appearances before the side gained promotion to the just ended 2019/20 Spanish top-tier season.
