Southampton Transfer Rumours

Trying to look for a dedicated hub for Southampton FC can be difficult to find amongst all the rubbish online. So, here at the Football Transfer Tavern, we have decided to create the number one source for all the daily updates on your favourite South Coast club.

If you’re looking for the latest Southampton transfer rumours, analysis breakdowns, opinion pieces, and social media reactions, you will be able to find everything you want to know about your dearest Saints here.

Southampton Transfer Records

While Southampton’s budget doesn’t compare to some of their closest rivals, the Hampshire side have still managed to break their transfer record on several occasions in recent years. Centre-back Jannik Vestergaard became the club’s top signing after joining for £22.5m in July 2018, overtaking the £20.7m the board paid RB Salzburg for Sadio Mane all the way back in 2014.

Having previously spent a spell on loan with the Saints, former Liverpool forward Danny Ings moved back to St Mary’s Stadium last summer for a figure just shy of the amount they spent on Mane, and his impressive goal tally this campaign has led to many calling for the 27-year-old to be included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

In contrast, Guido Carillo has proven to be an expensive mistake, and the Red and Whites have failed to find a potential buyer for the Argentine in several transfer windows so far.

Famous Southampton Transfers

Of course, fans will still balk at the memory of major flops like Carillo and Dani Osvaldo, but the club has unearthed lots of hidden gems year after year. Ronald Koeman discovered a relatively unknown defender by the name of Virgil van Djik, who would then leave for Merseyside for a record fee at the time.

Ryan Bertrand lacked game time at Chelsea and has become a permanent fixture in the Saints starting lineup ever since.

As time goes on, managers such as Mauricio Pochettino and Mark Hughes, have had to rely on youth players from the world-renowned academy. The performances of youngster Michael Obafemi promise for bigger things to come. Southampton’s youngest goalscorer in Premier League history still has quite some way to go before he lives up to the likes of club legend Alan Shearer.

Biggest Southampton Rumours

Ralph Hassenhuttl’s men have conceded the second-highest amount of goals this term and their defensive struggles will be the Austrian’s primary area of concern heading into the upcoming transfer window. The loan arrival of Kyle Walker-Peters hasn’t quite worked out as well as hoped, with James Ward-Prowse ably filling in at the back, and the Saints are eyeing moves for Joakim Maehle and Diogo Leite.

The head coach must sort out the problems between the sticks and identify a first-choice goalkeeper. Olympiakos shot-stopper Jose Sa has been tipped to replace Angus Gunn and Alex McCarthy in the summer.

As always, Adam Lallana has been linked with a return to St Mary’s, and it is unlikely those rumours will go away before the start of next season.

Fans will also be paying close attention to what is going on off-field. According to reports, chairman Gao Jisheng and Lander Sports Investment have put the club up for sale, and the South England side could be set for a period of uncertainty in the coming months.
