Saints Transfers Thread - Deadline Day


Recommended Posts

Looks like a decent signing, our starting midfielders are all pretty good technically but none of them have the pace or power to really break through the oppositions midfield. Seeing as we would never pay the going rate for a true number 10 this is probably the next best thing, having a midfielder that gives the opposition something to think about when going forward, even if it isn't for his goal scoring ability

Don't think you'd call him a #10

"From Turin to England, Southampton: Mario Lemina's future is all English. In particular, ESPN filters how the negotiation is now closed. Additionally, we add other confirmations regarding the details of the deal: for a € 18 million deal plus two bonuses related to attendance. And so the Southampront beats Stoke City at the final sprint. Expecting medical visits this Monday. In a choice made by the player, strongly wanted by Pellegrino.b"

If Lemina is true, and we can get him over the line by midweek, it'll be a big lift for the club and fans. I wouldn't be surprised to see a behind closed doors friendly to ease him in. Definitely seems like the sort of player we'd sign. Good things come to those who wait? ;)

As others have said, appears to fit the profile of what we need almost exactly. Amazing how much more balance one signing can bring to a team.

 

This is surprising considering we are informed that Ross Wilson is a clueless idiot who wouldn't spot a decent player if one took a dump in his fireplace.

Perhaps this one did.

No way MP would indicate it being close after knowing that we've been pipped to the post a few times this window. If Di Marzio says it's happening then it probably is as he doesn't usually put his name to a rumour unless it's basically done.

Makes me larf, our black box is meant to be so unique but whenever we are linked to a player so are other clubs.
I don't think it's unique. Maybe better than others, but it's naive to think other clubs can't identify talent through traditional scouting. I'm sure that we still do a fair bit of that!

Nothing screams uniqueness more than when Stoke, Watford and West Ham are in the hunt for a player.

Why not a cheeky bid for Wilfred bony, lost his way at city could do with new lease of life obv depending on wages

 

Of all the idiotic expressions used in football, "cheeky bid" is up there with the worst. What the actual **** is a cheeky bid? You are either serious about signing a player, in which case you make a serious bid, or you are just taking the p!ss and p!ssing people off.

And what would we do with Bony anyway, Gabbiadini is much better than him.

Did I dream this? Or did somebody post on here recently (claiming to be ITK) that they'd heard we were after an "AMC" who had a year left on his contract?

 

Can't find the post.

 

A word of general advice: don't trust anyone called dazza.

I can see why a lot of people who were ITK have left. I'll think twice about posting anything in the future all I was doing was passing on what I've been told. I have no reason to not believe my source. Although I myself find it hard to see Barkley but the talk is we are looking at him

Could it be linked with a potential agreement over VVD going to Everton? Can't see us bothering otherwise - especially not at £30m + and £100k pw +
