With only four-and-a-half weeks until our last game of the season against Stoke, the end of the campaign is nearing and that means that the summer transfer window is nearby.
In the summer, Southampton are mostly known for selling our biggest players from the previous season but, with a lack of quality in our squad depth, Saints will hopefully look to buy, not sell, this summer.
Southampton have not had as good of a season as previous years. A new manager in Claude Puel has had a Europa League group stage to deal with, along with cup runs to please the fans. A decent 2016/17 campaign is what the Frenchman has given us, with Saints having enjoyed a terrific EFL Cup run, leading them all the way to Wembley, just narrowly missing out on silverware. Southampton sit ninth place at the moment on the Premier League table.
But one thing that has stood out to me is the lack of depth in certain positions, or because some quality players from last season really haven’t been cutting it. It might not take Long for many fans to figure out who I’m talking about…
So, with the transfer window not far away now, it’s time for me to look at what players I want Saints to sign this summer.
