James Maddison on his way within the next week. Around the £20m mark I believe.

Great signing if it actually happens. Always sceptical with transfer rumours for us. Hopefully a winger and CB are also on the agenda though as to me they seem much more of a priority. Also wonder what impact this will have on our academy players like Ward-Prowse and Hesketh if we do get Maddison? Are they just not good enough, or are we not willing to risk seeing if either of them can step up and cement themselves into the first team?

Called it a few weeks ago. Although it was just another name bandied around back then but I will be glad if it starts bearing fruit. Much needed competition for tadic and if we do stick with 3-4-1-2 then putting him behind the two forwards will be a mouthwatering prospect.

Really hoping for this, I put £30 on him coming at 33/ 1 =£1k cmon.

Yeh would like this to happen . also agree that a CB and winger is needed, I am really interested in watching Columbia play next week, so can look at Mateus Uribe, who we are apparently interested in, suppose to be a terrific player, as good in his defensive duties as going forward, quick, tenacious great passer and scores most of his goals from long range . (Real madrid were interestd) . The sort of wide player we don't have!

When I say tenacious, apparently this borders on aggressive at times, not a great discipline record, But, I personally Have no problem with that. it shows desire and a winning attitude.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wonder if Harrison Reed will be part of the deal? If he is, hopefully just a loan back!

Agree0 Disagree0

Speaking of wingers, how about Lozano of Mexico. Great goal scoring record for PSV, 17 goals in 29 appearances. Linked to Everton so possibly one at could get? .

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jun 2018 03:01:29
A player with high work rate is always welcomed in my book. I imagine Lozano was already in the 20+mil bracket and after this world cup it could rise even more. With us battling Leicester for Maddison who's already over 20mil as well, unfortunately can't see Les spend that much twice in one window unless he sees last season as a wake up call. I'd like to be proven wrong though. Lozano might be a bit too pricy like Promes, but both very good players.

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparently Saints are looking at Sampdoria's Duvan Zapata, who could be available for transfer. Is it just me, ordoes he just look like Agustín Delgado!?

Didn't West Ham try and sign him before and something went wrong? I can't recall if it was a medical or work permit.

Agree1 Disagree0

15 Jun 2018 15:47:16
They did, and he was 22 at the time - The issue then was he didn't have enough International Caps.

I've read today we are interested in Schneiderlin, hope we can get him back I loved watching him play football. Any truth in this Ed's or just paper talk?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

12 Jun 2018 12:22:40
Can't see it myself rich. Schneiderlin seems to have regressed since he left but vastly increased his wages. add to that the fact we are overloaded with similar central midfielders already I don't see us in for him. Particularly when we need creativity in the midfield, pace up top, and solidity at the back from our summer purchases.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Jun 2018 14:50:09
Completely agree with everything Milky said. Loved him when he was here, but we have no need for him now. I suppose if we were to lose Lemina, as has been vaguely rumoured, then I might be a bit more open to it, but even then I'd need some convincing.

Agree2 Disagree0

12 Jun 2018 15:11:03
I agree Saints 123. I hope we don't lose Lemina as I think that he'll show how good he is next season. I feel that we need 3 new additions to the team and for sparky to take us back to fast attacking football like we played under Koeman. Hoping for a top ten finish next year.

Agree2 Disagree0

13 Jun 2018 22:53:19
Agreed on Lemina. He's a class above. If we let him get settled in the team with a clear and consistent role, he'll show his true quality. Personally not convinced Hughes is the man to get this out of him (he had a lot of talented players at Stoke and never really made them stars - see Shaqiri, Arnautovic, Bojan, Zouma, Jese and probably more that I've forgotten), but oh well Hughes is the man we got, so please prove me wrong!

The sad thing is, you can already tell that Lemina has bigger things in his future than the Saints. With a bit of refining he is Champs League quality.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jun 2018 10:33:40
Rumor: We're looking at Stuart Armstrong from Celtic.
I must admit I know little about him, apart from he had a great season the year before last, but a poor time last time round. Can anyone enlighten me?

11 Jun 2018 08:22:05
Are we still trying to sign Promes, Eds? All quiet on that area.

How about Pione Sisto, Paco Alcacer or Uribe? Any truth in these?

West Ham haven't yet announced Anderson. Are we still keen on him?

{Ed002's Note - I don't see any chance that Quincy Promes will move to Southampton. Pione Sisto has been of interest but I would not hold your breath. Paco Alcacer would be very unlikely and it is tough to see Mateus Uribe joining Southampton.}

hi
edds
you don't seem to hold out much hope of signing anyone of any stature
then? is that because you think the club is to small or the club won't spend the money.

{Ed002's Note - I didn't say that. I answered about the players listed.}

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Jun 2018 13:56:41
Apparently Saints are renewing their interest in Barcelona outcast Paco Alcacer! This would be awesome if we could sign him. He would bring some serious attacking quality to the club. It seems that not many clubs are trying to sign him either.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

09 Jun 2018 17:22:34
I'm not convinced by this personally. I don't think an out and out striker should be our biggest priority. We need creative players much more than strikers, so I'd prefer Sisto or Promes.

Can understand people disagree though given our poor shot conversion last year.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2018 09:21:42
Perhaps I should have added that half our strikers need to go as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2018 12:36:26
I do understand what your saying 123, But He was prolific before He joined Barca', I just have a feeling 'Gabbi' will come good under MH, Sell on Long (great work ethic, but that's it) . Austin (if he can stay Fit), Gabbi, Alcacer and keep Sam Gallagher as forward options wouldn't be too shabby!
We All know, we created plenty of chances last season, We just couldn't finish, But with competition like that up Front!?

Agree4 Disagree0

10 Jun 2018 18:59:54
Yeah I can see why people disagree, but although the stats say we were missing chances, watching the games it never felt like we had the creativity. Don't quote me on this, but I wonder how many of these 'missed chances' were genuine chances and how many were half chances. I never got the impression, throughout the whole season, that we had any creativity. Each game felt like an anaemic performance without any spark, rather than a missed opportunity where our finishing let us down.

But as I say, I realise the stats tell a different story.

I wouldn't say no to Alcacer; I just think if we're only going to get 1 big signing, there are people I'd put ahead of him.

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jun 2018 15:11:18
Yeh. I agree . But I would like to think that He wouldn't be are only signing! I would also like to see a more direct player behind the forwards, Maybe We already have that player, just playing Him in the wrong position . Lemina? Thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2018 13:38:28
We have reportedly bid €25 million bid for Colombian midfielder Mateus Uribe.
Done a little research on him, an attacking, all action and aggressive player who scored 11 goals for mexican outfit Club America last season

Souce: Colombian Alargue Caracol.

09 Jun 2018 17:23:07
Never heard of him. Sounds like the right sort of player though.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jun 2018 18:23:39
What I've read he's as good as going forward as going back towards his own goal, Tenacious in the tackcle, good short and long ball player, fantastic work rate and has an aggressive mentality . Sounds like the sort of wide player we don't have . great competition for Tadic and definitely a different option to Tadic . can also play central if need be.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jun 2018 17:22:06
We are now looking at Aston Villa duo Andre Green and Keinan Davis for 4 million each. I haven't a clue about them apart from the fact that according to some reports they have scored some important and good goals for Villa. At 4 million it would be worth it I think as they are both young and seem to have potential.

Liverpool apparently now in for Shaqiri. Smart move, cut out the middle man and just go straight for the players we're linked with.

haha. If 12M is true, I would quite like him here.

Just seen a rumour that saints are going in for Swansea defender Alfie Mawson. Any truth in this eds?

I would love to see Mawson at the club. he is a class defender with some great potential. What are everyone else's thoughts?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

06 Jun 2018 20:11:36
Makes a lot of sense. I suspect if we sign him it'll be late in the summer though, as I'd have thought he'd want to see if rumoured interest from Spurs, Liverpool, Arsenal etc. materialises.

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Jun 2018 13:26:06
Decent young player who would fit into the Southampton way but I think there will be other clubs considered to be more fashionable taking an interest.

05 Jun 2018 11:42:19
Southampton are ready to activate Xherdan Shaqiri's £12m release clause
( source :The Mirror ) so?

05 Jun 2018 12:06:56
I think this would be a good move.

Agree2 Disagree0

05 Jun 2018 15:00:46
12 mil is nothing these days, despite Saints knack of penny pinching. Worth a shot. He's got better stats than most of our attacking midfielders last season.

Agree1 Disagree0

05 Jun 2018 16:58:41
I'm not a great fan of him. But if he does come and sorts out our attacking problem I sure won't mind! I could see him linking up with Tadic quite well, and if you look at when he was on form he scored some beautiful goals, and often out of nothing.

Agree6 Disagree0

05 Jun 2018 18:38:11
Not been a huge fan of the rumours, but in fairness I was thinking it'd be a fee much higher than £12m.

At that price, this is a pretty good piece of business, but I don't think it should stop us pursuing someone else like Promes, Felipe Anderson as mooted.

Agree1 Disagree0

04 Jun 2018 17:36:38
Getting linked now to felipe Anderson from Lazio would love this to be true! Any truth it this rumour Ed's?

{Ed002's Note - He is being hawked around I doubt that there is any chance he will end up in Southampton I am afraid.}

Yeh, I have read this aswell, Fingers crossed.

Agree0 Disagree1

05 Jun 2018 12:56:15
West Ham has supposedly had a 38m (in euro) bid rejected. So I doubt we'll be able to capture him if Lazio want more than that.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 May 2018 23:21:49
I seriously hope we don't go for Shaqiri. Feel like it would be a waste of money. Great player on his day, but he's too injury prone and is too similar to Boufal and Redmond in that they aren't productive enough, or consistent.

Promes would be the best signing we could hope to make imo. Pacey winger with goals in his game that would help take the pressure off the strikers.

Sisto would be next best as we massively lack creativity going forward. Feel like he would bring the best out of Gabbiadini again as his movement is great, just needs the service!

Also not seen him linked with us, but I think Zouma would be a great singing if we could make it happen. Not sure if he'd come to us or see Chelsea letting him go permanently. He would give us some sorely needed pace, aggression and physicality at the back, giving Hoedt more protection so he can play the passes. We've also been poor from both defending and attacking set pieces. Reckon Zouma would greatly help us in that area.

A back up right back for Cedric is definitely needed. And the keeper situation is a difficult one for me. McCarthy our best player by a mile last season but can he keep that kind of form going? Forstser's not good enough for first choice.

Thoughts?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Jun 2018 07:40:29
I have just heard that they are letting our Cedric backup, Jeremy Pied, leave when his contract runs out, which is soon. This is a bit of a shame as he has gone under the radar quite a bit and he actually performed really well for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2018 09:36:43
I don't think Shaqiri is the answer to all of our problems. He's probably a Tadic 2.0. He's another technically gifted player, but I would question his work ethic. It's cool that the board have appointed Hudges but I don't want him to just buy players from a relegated side that he used to manage in a yard sale.
If I'm being honest I think we'll be in for another underwhelming season - I can't see any signs of appointing fresh players. We needed to try and get some business done before the world cup. At least Promes won't be going to the WC so it's someone we would look to sign. Sisto also has the same qualities as Promes and is younger. However, I think the experience of Promes will make him a better signing if we could pull it off. It is always risky bringing in a player from Russia. A player that I think could be a good swoop is Lallana. I don't think he'll be able to get into the Liverpool squad much longer.
I don't rate Zouma, he had a really bad season with Stoke. I think Jack Stephens is a brilliant young defender. Hoedt also looks good and Bednarek has the potential to be a quality player in a couple of seasons.
Think we should keep McCarthy and have Harry Lewis as a back-up. I think it's harsh to replace someone who had a great end to the season, especially if it was for Hart etc.
Gabbiadini has committed to Saints which is great news, he's a good player who has lost out to a lack of game time and poor rotation from MP.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Jun 2018 11:13:35
Not sure why everyone is so anti shaqiri. He played 36 games scored 8 and assisted 7 in a team that only managed 35 goals. He is only 26 so personally I think he would be a good addition and in our price range. I would also happily take shawcross and zouma.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jun 2018 11:07:08
Shaqiri? Undecided whether He would be a good signing, But think its wrong to say that he would be a poor signing just because he was part of a relegated team. The Premier League is so competitive these days, there is always going to be Decent players relegated.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jun 2018 02:50:51
Shaqiri is a very good footballer and is 1 step above any player we have in the creative side of the team. He’d most probably turn us down anyway but I can’t belive the arrogance some saints fans having saying he’s not good enough for us. No wonder we end up with 2nd string. We poorly criticise anyone with undoubted quality because of a bad attitude. (Most good players do something like this as they are frustrated at the lack of quality of some others) Christ you lot would moan about getting MLT because well he’s abit lazy for our side. Absolute joke.

Agree3 Disagree0

05 Jun 2018 11:48:53
I'm Undecided, because I havn't really seen enough of him, only at the last Euros, where he looked brilliant, but have read about his inconsistent performances, but that could be the team around him? But reading today, We have put a bid in!

Agree0 Disagree0

31 May 2018 17:41:19

Eds do you know how's the progress of sam mcqueen's rumoured move to bristol? And will that mean Bertrand is staying or are we looking for another left back?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry. Bertrand has been asked to stay by Hughes.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 May 2018 17:13:39
Thanks for the info ed. If bertrand does stay I hope to see the bertrand under koeman than the one under MP2. Maybe its the tactics but he has to step up and regain his old form. Top 2 best english left back at the time. If we do seel McQueen I hope there's a buyback clause inserted. He's a solid performer, although not as good as targett, who I think is very much capable of making the left back spot his own when bertrand leaves.

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Jun 2018 14:03:39
Personally I’d move on from Bertrand this summer. I think we need to either start Targett or let him leave at this stage, and while Bertrand is quality his attitude last year was poor.

I’d take Zouma but he doesn’t seem to have developed as he should have. If we want to lay 3 cb’s though then he’d make sense as another option, and one with big potential.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jun 2018 03:18:38
Would take Joe Bryan from Bristol City to replace Bertrand all day long. Unlikely but a swap + £ deal, McQueen for Bryan would be a good bit of business.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jun 2018 11:14:10
Just Food for thought, When interviewed and asked the question, "who was the toughest opponent he has faced in the premier League since he has been here" Bernardo Silva replied "without a doubt, Ryan Betrand, so much so, that I got substituted in the last game of the season"
