Wingers who Southampton should consider signing this summer

Wingers who Southampton should consider signing this summer Southampton’s attacking players are thriving under Ralph Hasenhuttl. Before the Austrian was appointed as the club’s first-team manager in December, they had struggled to truly impress for Mark Hughes. However, Hasenhuttl has helped the team play more aggressively, and on the front foot, and in turn, the players in the final third of the pitch are enjoying greater success. Nathan Redmond has operated in a more central role and has found his shooting boots, evidenced by his brace and role in Southampton’s 3-1 win over Wolves at the weekend.

Three English clubs are interested in Chelsea youngster Martell Taylor - Crossdale , according to the print edition of The Mirror (May 1st, page 56).

Southampton are showing an interest in signing Chelsea youngster Martell Taylor-Crossdale, according to the Mirror.

The 19-year-old’s contract at Stamford Bridge expires this summer and there is every chance he will move on.

The Blues are yet to agree terms on a new deal and the young striker may feel that first-team opportunities are more likely to come his way elsewhere.

Despite having a big reputation at Chelsea, it is difficult to see where playing time will be given to him, even though a two-window transfer ban could still come their way.

Southampton Player Ratings: Huddersfield (H).
Southampton ended their Premier League season with a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield Town at St Mary’s. It was clear to see that there was little to play for with both sides lacking a creative spark to seize control of the match. Southampton took the lead just past the 40 minute mark through a fantastic strike from the edge of the box by Nathan Redmond. Saints almost doubled their advantage after half-time when a James Ward-Prowse piledriver was pushed onto the crossbar by the Huddersfield goalkeeper Joel Coleman.
