Our Southampton fans here in the Transfer Tavern are fairly pleased with this season and how it has gone even though they won’t be in Europe next year.
Combining their league duties with continental competition was always going to be the challenge for Claude Puel and his men and though they got to the EFL Cup final they haven’t quite had as successful a season as last time out.
Even so, they’ve once again contended well with players leaving and, though they’d like to think otherwise, it’s more than likely that more of their stars will move on from the club in the summer window.
Indeed, according to Marca, Barcelona are interested in bringing in midfielder Oriol Romeu when the window opens up for business – in a move that would see him go back to the Nou Camp.
Romeu has been superb this season for the Saints in terms of adding some much needed steel to the centre of the park and if Barca do manage to bring him in the men from St. Mary’s are bound to be unhappy.
Thoughts, Southampton fans? Let us know below!
