It’s all eyes to the summer transfer window for Southampton fans as we look to see what kind of deals Austrian manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will be allowed to do by our Board as we look to get the club back on an upward curve after a disappointing couple of years in the Premier League.
Having secured our top flight status with a couple of games to spare following his arrival at the club as Mark Hughes’ replacement, Hasenhuttl’s approach and belief in youth has certainly restored some optimism and plenty are relishing the opportunity to see what he can actually do with his own group of players and a full pre-season to get his ideas and demands across.
With plenty of speculation on the rumour mill, the Sun recently claimed that we were preparing to ‘swoop’ for Swansea City attacker Jordan Ayew after he spent the year with Crystal Palace.
Having struggled at Aston Villa, Swansea and then only managing one goal in 20 top flight appearances for Palace, I have no idea what they are feeding Sun journalists in the canteen, but he seems to be the polar opposite of what we’d find attractive given our struggle for goals.
It’s fair to say the suggestion hasn’t gone down well with fans on social media.

Not the player we are looking for. Origi would be perfect for our side. Young, tall and very verstile

No better than what we have. If this is the sort of signing the board are going to sanction/finance then it's just even more concern.
