Southampton interested in Iago Falque

Southampton have had a busy couple of weeks recently as Mark Hughes looks to prepare his squad for the upcoming Premier League season.

The Welshman has been working hard to ensure his side is not near the bottom of the table next season following this year’s abysmal campaign, which saw them survive by the skin of their teeth.

The Saints have added Angus Gunn, Stuart Armstrong and Mohamed Elyounoussi this summer and are thought to be in talks with Jannik Vestergaard.

However, reports in Italy are now suggesting that Hughes is considering a swoop for a player who once made one appearance for the St Mary’s outfit during a loan spell in 2012.

Tutto Sport are claiming Southampton are considering making a move for Iago Falque following his performances for Serie A outfit Torino. The Spanish playmaker was apart of the team that won promotion back to the Premier League from the Championship.

Despite not kicking it off in England, the former Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona trainee has thrived in Italy and has become a handful for defences. He has registered double figures for his goals tally in three of the last four years.

The Verdict:

Southampton are keen to add an attacking threat to their side this summer after they struggled to find the back of the net last year and do not want to constantly rely on Charlie Austin for his goals.

Torino are said to want to keep the 28-year-old, however, the Spaniard may feel he has unfinished business in the Premier League, with a failed move to Tottenham Hotspur in the past, and could want to prove himself to Southampton once again.
