Southampton supporters are jubilant in the Football Transfer Tavern following the appointment of unorthodox manager Mauricio Pellegrino, whom has already lined up his first player recruit.
The new boss has added young Polish defender Jan Bednarek to his ranks ahead of the new Premier League season, and it remains to be seen whether or not his arrival will fuel the inevitable exit of Virgil van Dijk.
Meanwhile, in the opposite direction, useful attacker Jay Rodriquez has departed the south-coast in search for guaranteed first-team football by penning a contract at Premier League rivals West Bromwich Albion.
The Saints fans by the bar are ecstatic that they have heavily been rumoured – by The Daily Mail – to make a swoop for Norwich City starlet Jacob Murphy, who has stunned onlookers in his first full campaign in the Canaries’ first-team.
However, Pellegrino can do a whole lot better which is why our landlord thinks the Argentine should aim to acquire differing players in the similar position of Murphy, which if he did make, he wouldn’t regret it whatsoever.
Southampton should look to sign ONE of these TWO players instead in this summer transfer window….Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
