Southampton: Saints eye Thomas Strakosha - Southampton Transfer Rumours

According to La Republicca (via Sport Witness), Southampton are interested in signing Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha.

The Lowdown: Saints have goalkeeper dilemma

Ralph Hasenhuttl has flitted between goalkeepers so far this term, with Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster both earning considerable time between the sticks.

Can you name all ten obscure Saints players? First up, who is this?

There have even been suggestions the boss is not sure who his number one goalkeeper is (Hampshire Live).

The Latest: Southampton eye Strakosha

Now, it has been reported Southampton are interested in signing 26-year-old Strakosha.

He has previously been linked with a €50m (£43m) move to Liverpool, but this latest rumour says Lazio would be willing to let the Albania international depart for a far lower fee.

The Verdict: Top quality

This term has not been the best for Strakosha – he has made just eight appearances in Serie A (FBRef) – which may be a reason for his reduced transfer price. However, in the previous four campaigns, he averaged a save percentage ratio of over 73% – very solid for any goalkeeper in one of Europe’s top five leagues.

By goalkeeper’s standards, he is young, and has plenty of time ahead of him to improve. While Hasenhuttl previously said the Saints can only spend up to £10m per player this summer (Sky Sports), the south-coast outfit may be willing to be flexible on Strakosha, who is currently valued at £16.2m (Transfermarkt).
