    I can't see us signing any of them, to be honest. Not much chance with any of the freebies that would be worth picking up.
    Wouldn't surprise me to see Levy targeting players with a year left on their contracts, though.
    Ginter from A German Team, David Brooks from Bournemouth and Milenkovic from Fiorentina are all previous targets, for example.

    Sabitzer is the obvious player who fits that description, as well as either Stratoshka or Maignan

    Hasn't played much this season, having been replaced by 92-year-old Pepe Reina. Is he up to it?

    Sabitzer looks like a player I’d love, very good on the ball, a leader, and by all accounts a proper ****house to boot. I’m not sure what he is though, whether he’s best on the right, as a 10, or as a progressive CM. Versatility is certainly a plus but I suspect it depends on who will be managing us and where they see him fitting in.

    For some reason I expect we'd play him in much the same way PSG use Di Maria, as a wide playmaker

    Trying to fit Son, Sabitzer, Lo Celso and Ndombele into the same team is the stuff that FM newbies nightmares are made of

    I'd find it pretty easy and I think an attack-minded manager would, too.
    Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez/Rodon, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Ndombele; Sabitzer, Lo Celso, Son; Kane.
    Play on the front foot with plenty of possession and I think we'd dominate teams.

    Southampton are keeping tabs on Tottenham and England midfielder Harry Winks, 25. (Football Insider)

    Southampton will "do everything" to keep Denmark centre-back Jannik Vestergaard, 28, at the club, says manager Ralph Hasenhuttl amid reported interest from Tottenham. (Daily Echo)

    You guise thinking what I’m thinking?

    @Dier Hard is defo thinking what I’m thinking

    Winks for Ward Prowse makes far more sense - not least for our HG numbers, which people continue to ignore

    Swap Winks for Ward-Prowse, Ings and Walker-Peters?

    Sam Johnstone's name has come up again, which means we can add him to the list of players entering the final year of their contracts

    Also, he will be 29 when next season begins, he may be a short term fix but no long term solution.

    I'd take him as 2nd choice and bump Hart down the pecking order, but not as a replacement for Lloris.

    He'd improve the squad and is a home grown player who we might be able to afford...but I cannot see him as a long term replacement for Hugo...and we have desperate needs elsewhere in the squad.

    He should be well down a long list of priorities.
