Ralph Hasenhuttl will no doubt be demanding more money during the January transfer window, with the Saints dangerously close to the relegation zone.
It was only two seasons ago that Southampton were in the Europa League and battling with the big boys at the top of the league.
Now, the doom and gloom is back around St. Mary’s, with relegation being a very real possibility unless the team sort themselves out quickly.
There is definitely talent in their squad, yet offensively they seem to be lacking apart from the goals that Danny Ings has provided this season.
To rectify that looming problem, Southampton should turn to a player who isn’t a stranger to scoring and setting up goals – someone like Napoli winger Amin Younes.
If you said his time in Italy has been bad, that would be one hell of an understatement.
After moving from Ajax to Napoli over the summer, the former German international has since played just 17 minutes of football.
Younes, (who is valued at £4.5 million on Transfermarkt) unfortunately suffered an injury at the start of the season and even though he recovered towards the end of November, Younes has been unable to get a place in the Napoli team.
Southampton meanwhile, could do with another winger as Nathan Redmond has been the only real source for the Saints out wide this season.
As a 25-year-old, Amin Younes will be desperate to play as well, showing Napoli what he is really capable of if they were to give him a chance.
Things could quickly deteriorate for Southampton or alternatively if they spend, rapidly improve.
This window is massively important and Amin Younes could be a player that helps Southampton.
