Southampton lining up gamble on Euro-based talent as Puel looks for PL advantage

Our Southampton fans here in the Transfer Tavern are fairly happy with how their season has gone with them looking to finish as highly as possible.

In what’s been another year of transition under Claude Puel, the club have managed to reach a major final, play in Europe and remain in a respectable position in the Premier League.

The aim for them now, then, has to be to improve on those respective facets and make sure that they start keeping their squad together instead of seeing it get taken apart every summer.

The next transfer window, then, will be key for the club and, according to ClubCall, they have identified young winger Marcus Coco as their next potential recruit.

Playing for Guingamp over in France, Coco has a relatively unknown reputation but could therefore prove to be a masterstroke on Puel’s behalf.

He’s bound to know Ligue 1 better than most managers in the Premier League and so it would make real sense for him to try and garner an advantage from that.

Thoughts, Southampton fans? Let us know below!
