Southampton: Saints eye Ryan Christie - Southampton Transfer Rumours

According to The Sunday Post (via The Scotsman), Southampton are interested in signing Ryan Christie from Celtic this summer.

The Lowdown: Saints prepare for new campaign

The Saints experienced a mixed 2020/21 season – they reached an F.A Cup semi-final but also finished a lowly 15th in the Premier League table.

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

As such, Ralph Hasenhuttl and co have plenty of work to do this summer, and that is likely to include a number of new arrivals.

The Latest: Saints eye Christie

It has now been suggested the Saints have an interest in Christie, along with Burnley.

They could sign him for a fee of little more than £1m, but potential interest from other clubs could drive that price up. (The Sunday Post via The Scotsman)

The Verdict: Bargain deal

This would no doubt be a bargain deal for the Saints. Christie may have spent all his career in Scotland, but he has been an important player for Celtic down the years, with 40 goals and 41 assists in 142 matches (Transfermarkt). Last season alone, he picked up 15 assists in all competitions during what was a disappointing campaign for the Bhoys.

Would you like to sign Ryan Christie?

The fee is the most eye-catching part of any potential deal, though. Valued at £6.3m by Transfermarkt, signing for a sum of around £1m would be an absolute steal, especially considering he is still only 26 years of age and has played at Euro 2020 this summer. Hasenhuttl will be hoping that Southampton can get a deal over the line for Christie.

In other news, many Southampton fans are desperate for this man to return to the club.
