Southampton fans playing pool in the Football Transfer Tavern are discussing reports that a player they are being linked with is not for sale until at least the summer.
Talksport are reporting that Palermo have issued a hands off warning to potential suitors for attacking midfielder Franco Vazquez.
26-year-old Vazquez has impressed so much during his time in Serie A, that he is being dubbed as the new Roberto Baggio by many experts.
Speaking about Vazquez, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini said “Vazquez will definitely stay until June, then it depends on how we want to build Palermo for the next year.
“It’s difficult to tie down players in chains who receive offers in the level of salaries three times higher than what they get here.
“The finances make the difference, but economic differences can be reduced by a great coach.”
Southampton are likely to face competition for the player in the summer with Tottenham Hotspur among others linked with a move with the player.
Southampton fans in the Transfer Tavern are delighted to be constantly linked with talented players and hope that one day the player will turn out for the club.
Meanwhile, a number of Spurs fans enjoying a pint of the Transfer Tavern’s finest ale aren’t too bothered about this news, with them all agreeing they are more concerned about Harry Kane’s future at the club!
