Southampton rock Premier League rivals by opening talks with Barcelona legend

Southampton v Arsenal - Barclays Premier League

The Southampton fans who are competing in a darts tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports regarding their manager.

According to Dutch outlet De Telegraaf (via Sports Witness), Ronald Koeman is set for talks over an improved contract on the South Coast.

The board at the club are hoping they can reach an agreement with the impressive Dutchman and scupper Everton’s hopes of poaching him away from the club.

The 53-year old has opened talks with the club as he wants them to have the first refusal on his services and talks are expected to be ongoing for the next couple of weeks.

Though the former Barcelona defender is not thought to be overly interested in a move to Merseyside, many of Europe’s so called bigger teams are beginning to take notice of the Dutchman’s work at St Mary’s over the past couple of season’s.

One those in particular is believed to be Premier League giants Arsenal as they ready a contingency plan in the event Arsene Wenger retires.

The Saints fans in tonight are delighted that talks between Koeman and the club are ongoing and hope their march will continue.

Could you see Koeman ending up at Arsenal?
