Southampton fans here in the Tavern will be hoping for a better season next time round, as they escaped relegation by the skin of their teeth.
Indeed, the Saints will feel rather relieved that they remain in the Premier League after flirting with the possibility of relegation this season. Although, many of our local residents received some negative news on the transfer front recently, as according to the Mirror, Liverpool have shared an interest in Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.
Surprisingly, it’s understood that Champions League finalists Liverpool have shared an interest in Alex McCarthy, as they go on in search of a new No 1 after witnessing Loris Karius’ woeful performance in Kiev.
The Englishman helped the Saints ensure their Premier League safety this season by coming to the rescue on a number of occasions, as he has already proven that he can deliver world-class performances in the top-flight.
However, Southampton would be left in a tangle if Liverpool decide to make anything of the interest, as the shot-stopper would find it hard to turn down the chance to play European football.
Indeed, Alex McCarthy could be offered an escape route out of St Mary’s this summer if Liverpool decide to make something of their interest, as the ‘keeper won’t want to experience another disappointing season in the Premier League. So, the Saints will be desperate to hold onto him this summer, as he was one of their standout performers this season.
