Southampton fans here in the Tavern are feeling extremely delighted as their side managed to secure another season in the Premier League.
Mark Hughes has been a breath of fresh air since taking over at St Mary’s back in March, as he managed to complete an almost impossible task by keeping Southampton in the Premier League.
Therefore, with the summer transfer window just around the corner, Hughes (should he stay after reported talks) will now look to bring in a number of reinforcements before the start of the next campaign, as there’re plenty of improvements to be had after a rather stressful season.
Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger may look to reward Mark Hughes with a marquee signing in the summer, as the Saints may be able to launch themselves up the table next season if they can bring in a big-name player.
So, with the summer transfer window being of huge importance to the Saints, here’s who our local punters think Krueger should reward Hughes with…
Quincy Promes has established himself as one of the most exciting attackers in the whole of world football this season, having made it into double figures for both goals and assists.
And, having witnessed the Saints’ lack of potency in front of goal over the course of this season, bringing the Dutchman to the south coast could prove vital as he may be able to take them to the next level.
Indeed, with club record signing Guido Carrillo struggling to come to terms with Premier League football, Southampton should waste no time in bringing the 26-year-old to England, as he can guarantee goals and will also contribute towards the creative side of things.
