Southampton will surely be keen to bring in anyone they can to help their bid to stay in the Premier League.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has turned things around at St Mary’s but the season is far from other and Southampton are good enough to finish a lot higher in the Premier League table.
With a mix of inconsistency and some players just not being good enough, the Austrian coach will be right in thinking that he has to spend some money during the January transfer window.
In a bid to lighten the mood, Southampton need to be looking to sign some more creative players who could make a real difference in-front of goal.
Arsenal youngster Emile Smith-Rowe could be a good option for the club with the ability to play in different positions even at 18.
Smith-Rowe is a very talented player and he has already gone lengths to showing that this season, doing his all to be influential for Arsenal.
Although only 18-years-old, the Englishman looks ready to jump right to the top of football and make a real name for himself in the future.
His contribution this season has been great – six goals in 11 appearances – of which three were for the first team.
Emile Smith-Rowe can play on either wing or down the centre as an attacking midfielder. Southampton should definitely make a move because it’s now unlikely the youngster will feature much more for Arsenal, seeing as they want to make the top four and they have progressed in the Europa League.
Meanwhile, Southampton are notorious for developing youngsters and the same could be said about Emile Smith Rowe in a few years time when he turns into England’s next best prodigy.
