Southampton must target Neal Maupay after bringing in Hassenhutl

Southampton have had a fairly terrible season this year but this week, they finally got rid of Mark Hughes.

Hughes did manage to keep the club in the Premier League last season but this year, the former Stoke manager has guided his side to just one win, while losing seven games this season.

In truth, the appointment of Hughes was one Saints should never have made, however, in what looks like a wise appointment, Southampton have reportedly brought in former RB Leipzig manager, Ralph Hassenhuttl according to Sky Sports News.

The Breakdown

Hassenhuttl is regarded as one of the best young managers in Europe and with him at the helm, Southampton could have a coach who can keep them up and hopefully push them up the table next season if they survive.

With his introduction, Southampton need to give him some viable reinforcements in January.

Up front, Southampton have struggled. New signing, Danny Ings looks like he could be a shrewd piece of business but he has recently missed the last two games due to injury. Aside from him, Shane Long, Manolo Gabbiadini and Charlie Austin have all been horrendously out of form and therefore, Southampton should be looking to improve their attacking options.

One player they should be looking at is Brentford’s star striker Neal Maupay. The Frenchman has been in incredible form this season and has scored 13 goals this season and has been one of the players in the league this season.

With Brentford languishing in 17th, a move to the Premier League might be too tempting for the former Nice man.
