Southampton are believed to be closing on a deal for Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn, as covered by BBC Sport at the start of this week.
Gunn spent last season loan in the Championship with Norwich City, and it would be fair to say that the 22-year-old made a positive impression.
A number of clubs have been credited with an interest in the goalkeeper, but Southampton look to have won the race, with a deal soon to be announced.
The Southampton fans have been reacting to the news on social media, and some feel that Gunn’s arrival would see Fraser Forster leave the club.
Forster, who is believed to be on £70,000 a week at Southampton, shared the gloves with Alex McCarthy at St Mary’s last season, and there is no question that the Englishman struggled for consistency.
It seems that Gunn’s arrival could have serious implications on Forster’s future, and the Southampton fans have been offering their views on the situation.

If the Angus Gunn rumours become a reality, then that surely spells the end of Fraser Forster’s tenure at #saintsfc. It would be a shame to see him go, but a move away from the club is what he needs to try and revitalise his career!

Great news – genuine competition for McCarthy, eye on the future and can get Forster’s wages off the books #saintsfc

Still need AMC behind the striker(s)! And Gunn IN for Forster.
