Southampton eyeing Ligue 1 goal-getter in bid to kick-start Euro challenge

Our Southampton fans here in the Transfer Tavern are in good spirits after their win last night, and could be about get even happier with L’Equipe reporting their interest in Valere Germain.

The Saints grabbed the upper hand in their League Cup semi-final tie with Liverpool last night as they won 1-0 in the first leg at St. Mary’s.

A goal from Nathan Redmond was enough to seal matters but, in all honesty, without Charlie Austin the club do look a little short up top.

Indeed, Claude Puel seems to have had the same thought process and could now move for Germain.

The Monaco striker has nine goals and four assists this season with him playing partner to Falcao up front. Their partnership has seen them go well in Ligue 1 and the Champions League this season and that kind of form would surely please Saints fans around the country.

Their European campaign did not go as well as they’d have liked this season and with them looking slightly off the pace to qualify for next year, our landlord reckons Germain could be ideal.

Thoughts, Southampton fans? Let us know below!
