Southampton: Tom Barclay drops triple exit claim

Southampton: Tom Barclay drops triple exit claim -Southampton News

Southampton are open to selling the likes of Theo Walcott, Moussa Djenepo and Nathan Redmond this summer, journalist Tom Barclay has claimed.

The Lowdown: Busy transfer window

The Saints’ squad is beginning to take shape ahead of the Premier League season following the recent arrivals of highly rated youngsters Gavin Bazunu and Armel Bella-Kotchap.

However, a number of reports have emerged linking several players with exits from St Mary’s. According to reports shared by BBC Sport, Walcott is considering a move to the MLS, with New York Red Bulls, New York City FC, LA Galaxy and Los Angeles FC among his possible destinations.

Furthermore, attackers Redmond and Djenepo are set to be out of contract at the end of the season, and with it being the club’s final chance to can cash in on the pair, this could be the transfer window in which we see them depart the south coast.

The Latest: Barclay’s claim

Barclay believes that Southampton would be more than willing to part with the trio if adequate offers were presented this summer.

Speaking with GiveMeSport, the journalist claimed: “They’re open to selling the likes of Nathan Redmond, Moussa Djenepo and Theo Walcott, so if they do get rid of any or all of those three guys maybe [they might look at] a wide player too.”

Saints fans! Do you remember who scored your first goal of the 2021/22 season?

The Verdict: Cash in now

Following the recent arrival of Joe Aribo from Rangers, the Nigeria international provides Ralph Hasenhuttl with a versatile player who can cover the majority of attacking and midfield positions.

Therefore, the likes of Walcott, Redmond and Djenepo – who started just 30 league games between them last season – will likely have fallen further down the pecking order, rendering them dispensable for the club.

Is Joe Aribo a good signing for Southampton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With the Saints now keen on replacing older squad players with promising youngsters, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them cash in on the trio, with a number of gems possibly in the pipeline.

Walcott is now 33 years old, and whilst Redmond and Djenepo are 28 and 24 respectively, this could be the ideal time to sell the pair as they still have plenty of time on their side to be stalwarts at other clubs.
