Guido Carrillo must lead Southampton exodus this summer as Ralph Hasenhuttl looks to rebuild

Guido Carrillo must lead Southampton exodus this summer as Ralph Hasenhuttl looks to rebuild

It is fair to say a lot of Southampton’s signings from recent transfer windows have not worked out.

And that obviously includes Guido Carrillo, who the south coast club spent big money on last January.

The 28-year-old arrived at St. Mary’s from AS Monaco for a club-record fee of £19m (BBC Sport) but failed to make any real impact before being loaned out to Leganes at the start of the now completed 2018/19 season.

Carrillo is now being linked with a return to Argentina, with Boca Juniors said to be interested in his services, according to Sky Sports.

It is not clear whether they are interested in a loan or permanent deal, but the Saints would be wise to force them into opting for the latter.

Southampton have quite a few flops who spent the season out on loan and are probably on decent wages, and now is finally the time to get rid of them for good as Ralph Hasenhuttl looks to take the club forward.

Carrillo should be the first name out of the door with the likes of Wesley Hoedt and Jordy Clasie following shortly behind.

Neither player has been able to come in and deliver what was expected and now is undoubtedly the time for everyone to go their separate ways.

Southampton fans, what do you think? Is it time for Carrillo and co to go or do they deserve another chance at St. Mary’s? Let us know in the comment section below!
