Hi Ed's, thanks for your previous information it was brilliant. I have a question about Paco Alcacer.

I presume he is Southampton's preferred striker option as they have tracked him for some time. Are Barcelona still trying to offload him? I presume he would prefer to fight for a place at Barcelona than move? If he was to move would Southampton be a good option for him or does he have better options on the table? I would love this to happen as I think he is exactly what we need.

Obviously saints need to offload before we buy anyone else but is Danny Ings a more realistic option for Southampton I'm also a fan of his but am curious is Southampton are waiting to see what's happening with Alcacer baring in mind Ings injury record as we already have Austin.

{Ed002's Note - Paco Alcacer is available and Barcelona would like to get around €30M for him. There are interested sides, including Southampton, but the player will need persuading that any move is right for him. Ings is cheaper but will decide carefully where to head.}

Ed, do you know whether there's any interest from us in Iago Falque from Torino? Know he was with us briefly for a loan spell few years back. Has developed into a good little player with a good goals/ assists record. Feel like we need another first team quality winger/ cam. Cheers in advance.

{Ed002's Note - I don't know Tom. Certainl;y Leicester has an interest.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Some impressive signings so far. let's hope we can get rid of some of the dead wood and that we still have on our books (boufal anyone? )

Looks like we will miss out on shaquiri as he's going to Liverpool (strange signing for them)

I still think we need some real creativity (No.10 or tricky right winger) and a proper striker.

Ed have you any new info on these positions other than what you've already posted? Also is there any update on Marlon Santos? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing new.}

Agree0 Disagree0

13 Jul 2018 15:50:09
No worries. Cheers.

13 Jul 2018 15:57:43
Liverpool probably only trying to buy him because they don't want us to get him.

13 Jul 2018 16:16:53
Very impressive so far have to say! But we'd still need another CB (Santos? ), a proven striker (Ings? ) and a creative no 10). If we could fill those, it has to be the best transfer window ever!

And still need to sell/ loan out Boufal, Forster, at least one CB (Yoshida/ Stephens? ) and one striker (Long? )

13 Jul 2018 17:39:12
@teejaysaint they're just cutting out the middleman.

13 Jul 2018 18:15:56
@ SaintySaintSaint He'll only be warming their bench if he goes there anyway.

14 Jul 2018 10:17:53
Jarkko, don't really get the logic of us signing another CB only to then loan out Stephens or Yosh?

Agree we still need someone who can unlock a defence, either as a 10 or a winger.

14 Jul 2018 19:09:49
Look at Ed002's message from 4th July. He clearly said that 2 CBs are on the radar. And to me thats! ogical. We used to have strong stopper pair, Fonte/ Alderweireld then Fonte/ VVD. We didn't replace Fonte or VVD until Vestergaard signed. To me, Hoedt is at the moment far away from PL standard as is Bednarek and Stephens. Yoshida decent backup, but not a regular starter. So, I pretty much share the opinion that two strong CBs this summer is needed. Then we need to offload some CB quantity.

12 Jul 2018 08:08:35
Vesterguaard . Has he signed or hasn't he?

Agree0 Disagree1

12 Jul 2018 09:53:11
If it’s not on the official website then he hasn’t signed YET.

12 Jul 2018 14:37:28
Apparently it's down to paperwork issues in Germany from BMG side.

12 Jul 2018 15:35:21
Had his medical yesterday but with the England match and all the club probably decided to wait.

Gunn signed and had his publicity stuff done the day before he was announced, in fact he posted it on his own Twitter before the club and was being shown around the city when it was announced. So no official announcement doesn’t = hasn’t signed.

13 Jul 2018 11:53:47
Yep signed!

13 Jul 2018 12:26:19
Signed. Official.

10 Jul 2018 21:46:33
So pleased the club are showing intent . We will do well with these new signings. A goal scorer needs to be added soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jul 2018 21:16:27
We have signed Angus Gunn! Great keeper with loads of potential. Hopefully means that Forster is out. Gunn will provide good competition for McCarthy. The transfer window continues to get better!

Agree1 Disagree0

10 Jul 2018 12:53:28
Any strikers inbound at all?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jul 2018 06:50:07
Surely! I think we will fight for Ings (great signing) and maybe Petagna. Quite sure Long will follow Carrillo (loaned/ sold) . I would like to see Gabbi staying.

09 Jul 2018 23:03:09
Any news on the Marlon Santos deal? I saw recently that we were close to signing for 12M euros. Is this a move that might still go ahead with Vestagaard signing or has interest been dropped?

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Jul 2018 06:53:01
Claims from Spain that it is a done deal as player wants to join Saints instead of West Ham! This will mean Yoshida/ Stephens/ Bednarek will be sold/ loaned. I think they will give Hoedt another season to prove himself.

11 Jul 2018 11:43:38
Be a shame to see Yosh go. Sure he's made a few mistakes in his time but on the whole he's been a good servant to Saints. I also think he had a pretty good World Cup.

09 Jul 2018 10:22:27
Vestergaard fee agreed £18 million, should be done before the end of the week.

Agree0 Disagree0

09 Jul 2018 11:29:08
think he's having his medical today. looks like a decent player. went to the WC for denmark although he didn't play any games.

08 Jul 2018 11:49:25
Is there any news on Shakiri to Southampton?

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Jul 2018 13:08:58
Honestly can't see this happening. Even though he played for Hughes at Stoke I'm sure he will get offers from bigger clubs than ours. I still think that we need 3 or 4 more signings to hopefully turn us into a top ten team again.

09 Jul 2018 22:07:32
Ed’s any news on the Shakiri situation? Cheers Sam.

{Ed001's Note - he has been offered around. Not sure he has had the offers he thought he would get.}

10 Jul 2018 20:47:40
Do you think there is a chance he could end up with us? Or are the teams involved still More desirable than ours? Thanks again Ed’s. Sam.

{Ed001's Note - there has not been that much interest from the Prem, but he doesn't seem that keen on Southampton. He thinks he is too good for a team that isn't competing in Europe. Not sure why he thinks so, but there you go.}

11 Jul 2018 22:29:25
Thanks for the info Ed’s, appreciate your time. Sam.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}
