Our Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern are on a scouting mission for the next Southampton player to make the familiar journey up the M6 to Anfield this summer.
It’s the most trodden route in transfer Premier League history, that one from Southampton to Liverpool. Eight players in the Premier League era have made the move north, some have flourished, while some haven’t. Indeed, Liverpool could once again go back to their favoured club this summer our punters believe, should Southampton go down in search of some bargain basement deals.
While the Saints host the Reds today, our barman thinks surely Jurgen Klopp will be casting an eye over a potential couple of players that are impressing even though Southampton face the fight against relegation. Liverpool themselves need a win to sustain their top four hopes and many of the former players will be going back to prove a point.
