It’s been reported this week that Southampton are keeping a close eye on KRC Genk winger Leandro Trossard and that we could be playing a swoop for him come the January window.
The 23-year-old plays in the Belgian Jupiler Pro League – the top-flight in the country – and fair’s fair, the youngster seems to have been in fine form so far in the 2018/19 campaign as based on statistics I can find, the versatile player has scored eight goals in ten league appearances so far.
That goes to ten goals in 12 appearances when you include their Europa League campaign, so there’s something about the kid.
Being predominantly described as a left winger though, is that where we should be looking to add come January given how our own campaign has gone so far? 24-year-old Mohammed Elyounoussi has somewhat struggled for game time under Hughes so far this season and his goal record at previous clubs is more impressive and we know what Nathan Redmond can do, even if his goal return isn’t that great.
Instead of spending another set of million double figures on a player we don’t know how to get the best out of, why don’t we use the January break clause on Josh Sims’ loan and bring him back?
Job done, fans happy. Well, happier.
