Southampton's interest in Arfield is 'wide of the mark'

Southampton's interest in Arfield is 'wide of the mark' Reports linking Rangers midfielder Scott Arfield with a summer move to Southampton are believed to be ‘wide of the mark’. A report from the Daily Record has dismissed Southampton’s interest in the former Burnley man. It was claimed last month that Arfield could be a summer target for the Saints as they look to buy more British players. The club are said to be seeking a return to their former transfer approach that brought much success in years gone by. Southampton were reportedly eager to buy British this summer and Scottish-born Arfield was one of the players said to be on their radar.

Southampton is considering a January swoop for Crystal Palace midfielder Yohan Cabaye, The Sun reports. Claude Puel, who worked closely with Cabaye in the early stages of his career at Lille, feels the Frenchman can add the quality necessary for a top-eight finish in the Premier League.

Southampton are reportedly weighing up a move to sign Bristol City defender Lloyd Kelly.

According to Bristol Post, Southampton are keen on a deal to sign the youngster, having been impressed with him this season.

The report claims that Southampton have sent scouts to watch Kelly numerous times and enquired about a move back in January.

Bristol City are said to want a fee in the region of £15m for the England under-21 international defender.

Kelly is capable of playing at left-back or at centre-back and has thrived in both positions under Lee Johnson at Bristol City in the Championship this season.

The Bristol Post also claim that it is unlikely that the club will allow Kelly to leave ahead of next season, as they plot promotion to the Premier League – having missed out on a top six finish this year, narrowly finishing behind Frank Lampard’s Derby County side.

Liverpool weighing up Adrian swoop.
Liverpool are reportedly weighing up a move to sign West Ham goalkeeper Adrian this summer. According to GOAL, Liverpool have discussed the possibility of bringing Adrian in to be the club’s number two behind Alisson next season. The report claims that Simon Mignolet is expected to ask to leave Anfield in the coming month and Liverpool are considering signing Adrian to replace the Belgian. Adrian is out of contract this summer and set to leave West Ham on a free transfer, which would then allow him to sign for Liverpool. Crystal Palace and Bournemouth are both also said to be interested in the Spaniard.
