The curious case of Southampton striker Guido Carrillo probably singlehandedly sums up former manager Mauricio Pellegrino’s time at St Mary’s Stadium.

The 27-year-old was Pellegrino’s big money buy and we paid Monaco a cool £19million for the Argentine, but sadly for us he failed to impress, adjust or score in his seven starting appearances and three substitute showings and he quickly fell out of favour.

Over the summer we shipped him out on a loan spell to Leganes where he rejoined Pellegrino and he has had a slightly better time of things, scoring six times in 32 appearances (22 starts) but it was hardly phenomenal.

According to outlet SDNA Carrillo could be given an escape route by Greek side Olympiakos, but there’s no way they would get near £19million, and I’m not sure we’ll accept that much of a hit – but at least if they do have some interest it might play in our favour and start a small bidding war which eeks the fee up a small touch.
