‘Stinks of desperation’, ‘Uninspiring’ – Southampton fans unconvinced by reported transfer target

Southampton supporters have been quite downbeat in the Transfer Tavern this week after seeing their side throw away a two-goal lead to end up drawing 2-2 with Watford in the Premier League on Saturday, thus keeping the pressure firmly on manager Mauricio Pellegrino.

The Saints may well have gone into their clash at Vicarage Road off the back of a 1-0 success over Fulham in the FA Cup, but they had prior to that failed to win any of their preceding nine league games, a run which has seen them slip into a relegation battle. Yet they looked on course for a first victory since November as a James Ward-Prowse brace gave them a 2-0 half time lead, only for goals from Andre Gray and Abdoulaye Doucoure, the latter highly controversial, to secure a point for Marco Silva’s Hornets.

Subsequently, there have been a few despondent Southampton fans in the Tavern in recent times, although they are likely to be intrigued by recent reports linking them with Monaco forward Guido Carrillo.

The 26-year-old has struggled for regular starts under Leonardo Jardim this term with just six to show for his efforts so far this season, leading to speculation regarding his future at the Stade Louis II.

And reports recently suggested that Southampton are hopeful of completing a deal for the Argentine, although it’s fair to say that the response on Twitter from Saints supporters was far from convincing…

Southampton fans… what do you think? Let us know!
