Southampton fans react as Fulham left-back Joe Bryan emerges as a transfer target

Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to react after Football Insider revealed that Fulham left-back Joe Bryan is in the Saints’ sights as they look to beat Serie A side Atalanta to his signature.

The report states that the Cottagers value the 26-year-old at over £5m, and would be willing to sell him if a club met their £7m asking price.

Football Insider also mention that the Saints could have an advantage over Atalanta as they are looking at a permanent deal, whereas the Italian side would prefer a loan.

Bryan cost Scott Parker’s side £6m when they signed him from Bristol City in the summer of 2018, and he has since made 57 appearances for the Londoners – he was, however, part of the Premier League’s leakiest backline which conceded a whopping 81 goals in 38 outings last season.

The 26-year-old has enjoyed a better campaign this time around, scoring one goal and recording three assists in 26 Championship appearances for Fulham, who sit fourth in the table.

Would you be happy with the signing of Joe Bryan?

Let’s see how the Southampton fans on Twitter reacted to the news…

To kick off the reaction, these two fans expressed their satisfaction with this transfer news.

Andrew Green said that he really likes this move, before stating that Bryan would provide “solid backup” to Ryan Bertrand, while he also has Premier League experience and comes at a “good price as well”.

Also, the other supporter named Max simply said that he’d “be happy with that”.

Contrastingly to the first pair of supporters’ reactions, these three fans do not seem in favour of a move for Bryan.

They all made reference to his efforts last season as Fulham conceded 81 goals and finished 19th with just 26 points to their name.

Call yourself a Premier League expert? How much did each of these big-money January signings cost?

1 of 19

How much did Arsenal pay to sign Andrey Arshavin in January 2009?

Mark said that the Englishman looked “Championship level” with Fulham in the 2018/19 season, while the other two fans both used the word “dreadful” to describe Bryan’s previous campaign.

Lastly, without giving any reason, James White simply said “no thanks” – safe to say that he doesn’t want Bryan anywhere near St Mary’s, then.

In other news, these Southampton fans have been discussing “good news” on a target who’s “not really proved himself”…
