Southampton know that they need to make some signings during the January transfer window, if they hope to remain in the Premier League this season.
After an awful start to the campaign, Mark Hughes was sacked and relatively unknown Ralph Hasenhuttl recently took the reins.
Upon a strong start under the new boss, optimism was as high as it’s ever been at St Marys but those same supporters have been brought back down to life after two consecutive defeats.
Their problems still remain defensively as they concede too many goals and offensively, as they tend not to score a lot either.
Those two combined spell trouble for Southampton but that could be fixed with the helping hand of former manager Mauricio Pochettino, if he lets winger George-Kevin Nkoudou join St Marys.
Nkoudou, (who is valued at £6.3 million on Transfermarkt) has been completely forgotten about at Spurs, after playing just 27 minutes of football this season.
For a talented, 23-year-old who was once tipped for very big things, that simply isn’t enough and he needs to move away from Tottenham to become a better player.
With the chance to boost his game-time, there is no doubting the Frenchman can thrive again, especially under the new attacking system that Ralph Hasenhuttl has implemented.
Southampton, although results haven’t demonstrated it just yet, are slowly improving under the Austrian meaning George-Kevin Nkoudou could too.
His time in England has been far from good so far but one move during the January transfer window could change all of that.
Southampton are in need of a hero in attack, which George-Kevin Nkoudou could be if he lives up to the expectation that brought him to England in the first place.
