The mass exodus of Southampton’s superstars appears to have begun as fan favourite Rickie Lambert secured a dream return back to his hometown club Liverpool for £4 million.

With hefty speculation surrounding the futures of Adam Lallana, Luke Shaw, Dejan Lovren, and Morgan Schneiderlin, the club look set to see a host of key players head for the exit. Whilst the club will no doubt accrue significant funds from these potential movers, they will certainly look to use a fair fraction of it to replace the departed Lambert.

Youngster Sam Gallagher has shown enough signs of progression this season to suggest he could be the answer in the future, the club know that they will need an experienced option in order to compensate for the goals and assists Rickie Lambert contributed.

So with this in mind, here are SIX potential recruits who could go some distance to helping deal with the loss of the Liverpudlian.
