Southampton could be set to offload Guido Carillo, according to AS.
They claim the Argentine is wanted back at Spanish outfit Leganes.
The striker arrived at St Mary’s in January 2018 as the club’s record signing, but his move to the south coast has not worked out.
The 28-year-old spent last season on loan at Leganes and scored six goals in 32 La Liga matches. Transfermarkt value the former Monaco player at £6.75million, and the attacker still has two years remaining on his contract at Southampton.
Mauricio Pellegrino was the Saints manager when the forward arrived at St Mary’s, and now is the manager of the Spanish club that’s pushing for the transfer, he is eager to reunite with him again.
The report claims that Carrillo currently finds himself ‘in limbo’ and is waiting for his future to be sorted out. It is claimed Leganes were hoping to secure another loan deal but Southampton want to get rid of the player permanently.
They also believe Saints want to recover as much of their £13.5million investment as possible. The former Monaco man has only managed seven league appearances during his time with the cub.
The arrival of Che Adams from Birmingham City will likely mean Carillo will find himself even further down the pecking order.
