Premier League

3 realistic January signings that would sort out Puel’s struggling Southampton

PAGE 2/4

Edin Dzeko

One player that would likely be near the top of every punter’s transfer wishlist would be Roma striker Edin Dzeko.

This Saints side is crying out for a proven attacker – especially with top goalscorer Charlie Austin currently ruled out because of a shoulder injury – and the former Manchester City man would certainly get the seal of approval from the tavern landlord.

The 30-year-old netted 50 goals in 130 appearances for the Citizens during his previous spell in the Premier League, and his prolific form shows no signs of deteriorating as the Bosnian has scored 18 goals for the Italian giants this term.

It would likely take a sizeable offer to prise him away from Rome, but as Southampton’s form continues to drop, it is a gamble that might have to be taken by Claude Puel and one the fans by the bar would certainly relish.
