Henri SaivetThe Southampton fans in The Transfer Tavern are gathered around the jukebox discussing reports that the club could be set to swoop for two players at a French top flight side.

The Sun is reporting that Ronald Koeman is planning to raid Bordeaux to secure the services of both Henri Saivet and Whabi Kazri.

25-year-old Saivet is a Seneglese international winger, who is known for his pace and power and impressive dribbling ability. He has made over 130 appearances for Bordeaux, who will be keen to keep hold of the player.

As for Kazri, at 24 he has played nearly 200 games in his career, which he has spent playing as a defensive midfielder. He is also a full international for Tunisia, having played 13 times for the club, and he has scored on six occasions.

Kazri joined Bordeaux in July 2014 after five years with Bastia and has gone on to make over 50 appearances for the club since signing.

The Southampton fans in The Transfer Tavern would love to see both players added to the ranks and hope a deal can be reached with Bordeaux to acquire their services.
