Our Southampton fans here in the Transfer Tavern want to see Claude Puel strengthen their side this month and, according to The Sun, they may get their wish via Sergio Oliveira.
The Saints have had a bit of an odd year so far with their league form up and down and their European campaign not getting past the group stages of the Europa League.
They’re in the semi-finals of the EFL Cup, though, and should they go on to lift the trophy it’ll likely mark a successful season for the club.
Nevertheless, many here in the Transfer Tavern think the club need to strengthen and it looks as though Oliveira could be the answer.
The Portuguese player, who can operate anywhere across the midfield, has not played much at all for FC Porto this season and so he himself might fancy a move to the south coast under Claude Puel.
Our landlord reckons it could prove to be a decent signing, too, given his versatility, but thinks that the spending should not stop there for the men from St. Mary’s.
Thoughts, Saints fans? Let us know in the comments below!
