With Southampton’s future remaining in doubt in terms of which division we will be in for the 2018/19 campaign, KRAZYB ponders potential summer transfer activities as the club will undoubtedly be working on plans behind the scenes.


We have just 8 games left in which to save our season.

This leaves us with in a quandary as we don’t know yet whether to buy to challenge for a higher league position in the Premier League, or whether we will be trying to return from the Championship.

Assuming hopefully that we succeed in gaining enough points to stay up, I am considering who we can go for in the transfer market.

One player that I like and who will be out of contract in the summer is Ki Sung-Yueng the Swansea midfielder. He can set up and score goals and also break up attacks. Just the type of player we need.

Issa Diop from Toulouse strikes me as a strong centre back that won’t be bullied and has a bit of pace as well.

Both players are the type that would fit in whether we stay up or not as Championship is more physical.

I believe a top goalkeeper is a must as well. McCarthy has done well but doesn’t inspire me with a great deal of confidence. Burnley have Tom Heaton and Nick Pope and we might be able to prise one away.

We will also need a goal scoring striker. Bobby Reid from Bristol City might work but would be a gamble.

Any additional ideas on possible targets – please add them for us to check out.

  • May help if we know where we are playing next season. Though those selections seem good wherever we end up.

  • I’d imagine to be fair the club are building two lists to cover all eventualities as if the worse does happen, we need to be looking to bounce back at the first attempt.

  • That will be much more difficult than when we burst through in one season after promotion from Div1. We were in the middle of a great run and carried on from the run that saw us get into the Championship. If we are relegated it will be so different and we will need to bring in a lot of new players.

  • Some manage it, and we’d have to hope we’d be one of them but in recent times for every Burnley and Newcastle, there’s an Aston Villa, Middlesbrough or worse Hull and Sunderland. Would certainly need to freshen the pack through just to change the atmosphere if that became the eventuality.
