Hi Ed's, wondeing if saints are still trying to bring in Paco Alcacer. Obviously there are factors such as squad size and needing to offload before we can bring anyone in so are we still trying to get him in I presume on loan maybe with option to buy? Is there a lot of competition for this one as-well that would be more desirable options for Paco.

Or are we perusing other options do you know who else if anyone, or due to finances are we stuck with what we have till we sell.

As always love the work you do, any information if greatly appreciated. I'd be happy with Paco or Ings.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, interest remains in Paco Alcacer.}

Likely to be any movement this window?

I'd love to see Paco Alcacer come to Saints but I certainly wouldn't buy Ings especially for the stupid money that Liverpool have valued him at. I don't think he's much different to Austin and is another injury prone player that's likely to spend more time in the treatment room than on the pitch.

Hi Ed's, thanks for your previous information it was brilliant. I have a question about Paco Alcacer.

I presume he is Southampton's preferred striker option as they have tracked him for some time. Are Barcelona still trying to offload him? I presume he would prefer to fight for a place at Barcelona than move? If he was to move would Southampton be a good option for him or does he have better options on the table? I would love this to happen as I think he is exactly what we need.

Obviously saints need to offload before we buy anyone else but is Danny Ings a more realistic option for Southampton I'm also a fan of his but am curious is Southampton are waiting to see what's happening with Alcacer baring in mind Ings injury record as we already have Austin.


{Ed002's Note - Paco Alcacer is available and Barcelona would like to get around €30M for him. There are interested sides, including Southampton, but the player will need persuading that any move is right for him. Ings is cheaper but will decide carefully where to head.}

Hi Ed's

Anything in the Sturaro links I think we have had a long term interest and with Clasie possibly leaving would we look for another midfielder?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of interest.}

Hi Ed's,

Long time reader, had an account ages ago. Do you have any information on what appears to be a major overhaul of the Southampton squad.

Recently it's gone from very little information anywhere and a rather quite summer to loads of tabloid speculation but there not exactly a good source for information.

It appears that Southampton are looking to get back on track after a rathe downward spiral the last two seasons.

Any input from you regarding situation or transfers targets would be brilliant and much appreciated.


{Ed002's Note - I would need to check - ask in two days.}

1.) 03 Jul 2018 08:45:30
Two days gone. Any news, Eds?

{Ed002's Note - I have asked and will chae it up.}

Any luck on the info ed? Us saints fans don’t get much reliable info these days.

{Ed002's Note - See earlier answer.}

If it’s not on the official website then he hasn’t signed YET.

Ed do you know who might be replacing pied at right back now he’s been released? Reed, Valery or new?


{Ed002's Note - I don't, but I could ask.}

Thanks Ed, the information you provide is amazing, anything in the Angus Gunn and Joao MARIO links? As I didn’t see them mentioned.

Mario seems unrealistic unless someone left maybe Lemina but I still see his transfer fee being more than Southampton would ever spend. Would be happy with Gunn if true at the expense of Forster.


{Ed002's Note - Joao Mario is being offered around for sale or as part of an exchange deal in order for Inter to raise some cash or complete a deal or two. I am not aware of interest from Southampton.}

Thank you ed002, fantastic information update.

Can I ask you your opinion on Southampton as a club, it has been a difficult time for the club managing expectation after such a great rise back to the PL and then Two rather underwhelming seasons and then doubts over the new owners. Do you agree it looks like we are trying to get back on track as a top 10 club? As if I asked a few months ago many fans felt like the wheels had fallen off the bus and looked doomed for relegation (reference to Nigel Adkins the legend he is) .


{Ed002's Note - I have no doubt that the owners want the club back on track and are looking to do the right thing. Personally I would have given Puel longer. Mark Hughes will of course also look to improve the squad and bring the club on - but no one else is treading water and the likes of Huddersfield, West Ham, Crystal Palace, Bournemouth etc. will all be making similar attempts at scrambling away from the relegation positions. It is likely to be another tough season in my view.}
