Southampton linked with a move for Andrea Petagna

  Southampton linked with a move for Andrea Petagna Southampton are reportedly interested in a summer deal for Atalanta forward Andrea Petagna. The Italian striker is set to be a wanted man ahead of the 2018/19 campaign and according to claims from TMW, a source in Italy, Southampton have expressed an interest in signing him. It’s believed by TMW that if Petagna is to be lured away from Gian Piero Gasperini’s side, a lowly fee worth in the region of £9 million will be required. However, Southampton are not alone in their apparent interest in signing the forward. Newly-promoted Wolves have also been tipped to move for Petagna this summer. Petagna didn’t enjoy the most productive season in Serie A last term, netting four goals and assisting five, but has widely been tipped as a hugely promising player. The towering striker has featured on one occasion for the Italian national team and was a prominent feature in his country’s Under-21 side. With Southampton’s goalscoring woes well-documented last season, it seems the club could be looking to recruit yet another striker to attempt to remedy their previous shortcomings.

West Ham target Marlon set for Southampton move

  West Ham target Marlon set for Southampton move West Ham look set to miss out on the signature of Barcelona defender Marlon Santos, with the Brazilian defender set to join Southampton, according to Diario SPORT. The Saints are chasing the signature of a new central defender this summer and if reports from Spain are to be believed, the club have pipped West Ham to the acquisition of Marlon. The Hammers have been heavily linked with a move for the Brazilian as Manuel Pellegrini continues to reshape the club’s backline. Having enjoyed an impressive season on loan at OGC Nice, the defender is set to be offloaded by Barcelona and it seems Southampton will be the centre-back’s next destination. Marlon is reportedly set to join Southampton for a sum worth €12 million, along with additional bonuses. The player’s representatives have long been pushing for a move away from Camp Nou after Marlon found first-team opportunities with the Catalan club extremely hard to come by.

Following the departure of Guido Carrillo to Leganes on a season-long loan deal, it’s thought that Southampton are on the lookout for a new striker as they continue to prepare for next season.

Petagna is an important player for Gian Piero Gasperini at Atalanta but it’s been previously reported that a sum in the region of £10 million could be enough to tempt the Italian outfit to offload the young forward.

Despite several reports linking him with a move to Southampton this summer, Andrea Petagna has joined SPAL on a season-long loan. The promising Italian forward had been heavily linked with a transfer away from Atalanta ahead of next season, with St Mary’s emerging as a potential destination for the player. However, it has today been confirmed that Petagna has joined SPAL for the upcoming season as he looks to lead the line for the Serie A outfit.

Sheffield United are chasing a temporary deal for the 22-year-old forward and Mark Hughes may be willing to let the forward depart for the season. However, after weeks of speculation, it’s been confirmed that Petagna will not be arriving in the Premier League any time soon, with the Italian attacker set to line up for SPAL next term.
