The Southampton fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports that one of their star players could be set to move on this summer.
As reported by The Express, the agent of Saints star Graziano Pelle has confirmed that he has held talks with Premier League rivals Everton and Stoke City in regards to a move summer.
With just a year left on the strikers contract contract, the South Coast outfit are believed to have offered a new deal, though if he fails to sign they would be willing to sell rather than risk letting him leave the club next summer.
It will be a bitter blow for those at St. Mary’s and they are said to hope that should the Italian make a move, it does not encourage other stars at the club to look to move on as well this summer.
Manager Ronald Koeman is closing in on a move to Goodison Park himself, with major changes becoming a sewing summer motif on the South Coast.
Speaking about contact with other clubs, Pelle’s agent Romualdo Corvino told Sport Italia: “With Juve at the moment there is nothing.
“However, there has been contact with Everton, Stoke City and China.”
Will Southampton sell their best players this summer?
