Pellegrino reveals transfer priority, Southampton fans react

Southampton fans have been frustrated with the performances and results on the pitch.

As it stands, the coastal club reside 17th in the Premier League table, with just a marginally better goal difference keeping them out of the relegation zone.

The team have picked up just four top-flight wins this season, the latest coming all the way back in November in the form of a 4-1 triumph over Everton.

The Saints have lost five and drawn four since that victory, which has caused fans to turn on the manager.

With the transfer window in full swing, Southampton’s following will be desperate for some new faces in there squad, particularly up front.

The likes of Shane Long and Manolo Gabbiadini have been misfiring, and in total the team have scored just 21 goals in 22 league games.

While speaking to the media in his press conference previewing Saturday’s trip to Watford, Pellegrino admitted that he wants to bring in a forward player before the end of the month.

The fans quickly made their feelings known.
