Our Southampton fans here at the Transfer Tavern have been rather underwhelmed by the start that their club has made to life under Claude Puel.
The Frenchman had big boots to fill after the departure of Ronald Koeman to Everton and, as yet, the jury is still out.
Having been eliminated from the Europa League the Saints must look to get their league form back on track and push their way up the table.
With the January window now open it is important that the French gaffer gets it right and brings in the right players to help them surge towards a Europa League spot.
During the summer they made some good additions but ultimately losing Saido Mane was a big loss and they’ve yet to find someone to replace the goals he provided for the club, as well as losing Victor Wanyama who has proven how important he was with his performances for Spurs of late.
Southampton have gained quite the reputation as a selling club and you’d like to think with the amount of money they’ve made from selling players that they’d have a big transfer kitty to use to invest back in new players! They simply have to sign a couple of players, at least, then, if they want to push back up the table.
That in mind then, here are two players the club should sign and two they should get rid of this month – according to our landlord…Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
