Our Southampton fans are feeling good here in the Transfer Tavern this Christmas week after they saw off Bournemouth on Sunday and are now reading The Mirror’s latest report into their potential January dealings.
Indeed, the story in question is suggesting that the Saints could be lining up a move for the young Nice midfielder Wylan Cyprien who has impressed this season in Ligue 1.
In fact, many of the players from the French club have impressed this year with the likes of Mario Balotelli deciding to show off his talent on the way to the team currently leading the pack in France.
Cyprien has scored six goals in all competitions for the club this year and it’s that, with his evident potential to grow, that is apparently leading the Saints to be interested in him.
Claude Puel has had a decent enough start to life with the south coast club this year and will be looking to improve on that for the second half of the season.
Our landlord thinks he will, too, particularly if the club sign Cyprien when the window opens.
Would you take Cyprien, Saints fans? Let us know below!
