The boys from the South Coast are here in the Football Transfer Tavern today, a group of Saints fans have made the trip up for a big weekend and we have got news that will get it off to a good start.
According to reports from The Sun, Southampton are lining up a move for Barcelona striker, Cristian Tello in a deal worth around £10m.
The 24-year-old has found himself out of favour at the Nou Camp, with two loan spells to Porto and Forientina in the past two seasons keeping him away from the Spanish giants. He is reportedly after a permanent move to England.
Despite interest shown by Swansea, Puel’s side seem to be in prime position to sign the striker, who won La Liga with the Catalan giants in 2013, with their £10m offer having reportedly been accepted.
The winger has scored 20 goals in 86 for Barca and would be more than suited to play in Saints’ Europa League campaign this season.
Saints fans, we want to hear from you! What do you make of this deal? Would Tello fit in well at your club? Let us know down below…
