LONDON (AP) - Southampton broke its club record for a transfer fee to sign Morocco forward Sofiane Boufal from Lille on Monday

The 22-year-old Boufal signed a five-year deal with the English Premier League team, which did not disclose the fee. British media reported Boufal is costing Southampton 16 million pounds ($21 million).

Boufal scored 12 goals in 34 games for Lille last season.

West Brom signed Belgium forward Nacer Chadli on a four-year deal from Tottenham, reportedly for a fee of 13 million pounds ($17 million).

Europe’s summer transfer window closes late Wednesday.
