If i were to throw a name out there who would fit Saints check boxes, I wonder if we'd try to get in Ronaldo Vieira as a replacement for PEH.

Played in the England unders set-up so Crocker would know him. 22, Has potential to further increase in value. Has had regular game time for Sampdoria, and Leeds before that.  

Just sayin...

Funnily enough, I remembered him getting a mention on here. 

With Yoshi and Gabbiadini at Sampdoria, you'd think you could sell him the club easily too

Some rando on Twitter linking us to Polish CB Bartosz Beresyznski - 28 years old for Sampdoria.

Someone else seems to think Lemina's loan to Besiktas will be confirmed tomorrow.

Probably both bollocks as it's Twitter, but it's a slow news day..!

Trying to follow this on Turkish twitter, it seems to flip flop between Galatasaray / Besiktas every other hour.

I wouldn’t ask you anything, Turkish.

You know everything, and I like to be surprised by our transfer news :)

I'd just be happy to finally ship out Hoedt, Lemina and Carillo for good. It would save so much money... and we can then look to strengthen. With a 1 in and 1 out strategy.

Don’t need to replace players who aren’t involved.

Vieira would be ideal. Is there an actual link? 

Burnley are losing a few players it seems, some didn't extend contracts in June. Their squad looks really small. Could finally be their turn to struggle. 

Hope so, fcking hate our usual performances against them.

I meant, Ship those players out for good, That would free up alot of wages. Then It's a 1 in and 1 out stratergy.. ATM those players are here but arent actually any use... So pointless in replacing.

I don’t disagree.  So hard to shift them.

At least Carrillo only has a year left.

I do wonder Southampton will look to just do what they did with Osvaldo and rip up his contract, And pay him out of his contract.
At least Lemina and Hoedt might actually get us some money.

Oh I didn't realise Spurs had £80 odd million in their transfer kitty. 'Cos that's what JWP would cost with a newly signed 5 year contract. Clearly written by a WUM on a slow news day.

Also according to the article, Saints predominantly rely on set pieces. 

Possibly not the most accurate article. However it will almost certainly cause ripples on Twitter.

This is the author of that piece

A 22 y/o football nerd seeking my way into football writing. I love Irish football and also the Premier League. A huge Arsenal fan! Aside from writing, I like to spend my time fishing and drinking beer.

So a self titled Football nerd and Arsenal fan who is into fishing, sound great company. He's also trying to prove he's a bit of a lad because he spends his time drinking beer, what a chap.

Fair play to Palace that would be a decent signing from what I've seen of him. But they have a long way to go to completely replace their ageing squad with a wantaway Zaha to boot. I can see them struggling in the next couple of years.

Messi CDAJFU.

Good backup to Redmond on the left IMO.

Possibly more chance of seeing Messi in a Saints shirt than Salisu the way things are going... ;)

its like having to hear a second hand story every summer of who your ex is hooking up with,  just as you had nearly erased all memory of her.

Him, Allan and the Watford chap will be another 80m - 100m spent on their midfield (if they all are joining). Two of them 29 years old. Not a great long term strategy again by Everton.

Unless we are going to have a 72 hour fire-sale, I’m not sure how we are going to generate the cash for this.

Well we pretty much know we can sell Reed for £8m, which is a decent chunk of the fee and realistically we are going to end up loaning Lemina, Carillo, Hoedt etc so I don't think it makes a huge difference.

If we really want McKennie and rate him then aged 21 he will increase his value anyhow as an investment and there must be a commercial upside to signing a marketable US national team player.

If we really can't afford to replace PEH even after selling him then its a pretty poor state of affairs.

Straight out of the Les Reed school of thinking.

I know the point you're making and you would hope this would be the case if a decent recruit but we've seen with others (Boufal a prime example) that it doesn't follow that their careers and value will take an upturn on joining us.

Ancelotti isn't there to build something though is he, he's there to get the club moving forward and competing with trophies now...Not sure they'll get anywhere though without a 20+ goal a season striker.

Rodriguez is on around £280k a week, I wonder what absurd wages Everton are going to pay him.

Could work out I suppose but he's been poor for years to the point where Real don't even use him on the bench, but it seems a very messy approach that they were supposedly moving away from, they seem to becoming more 'West Ham' than actual West Ham. 

Also as far as I am aware the only person they have managed to shift so far is Schneiderlin, so their wage bill is going to be huge.

Only 3 teams had a striker who scored 20 or more Premier League goals last season. Arsenal, Leicester and Saints - none of which qualified for the Champions League.

Liverpool won the league without a 20 goal striker and Man City, Man Utd and Chelsea qualified for the Champions League without a 20 goal striker.
