Southampton fans react to Alcacer speculation

Southampton continue to be linked with a move for Barcelona striker Paco Alcacer, and the Premier League club’s fans have been reacting to the latest speculation.

Southampton could spend close to £18m on Alcacer this summer – as covered by Mundo Deportivo – and it is certainly one to watch.

The Spain international joined Barcelona from Valencia in the summer of 2016, and the centre-forward has made 50 appearances for the Catalan outfit in all competitions.

Alcacer has only managed 15 goals during his time at Barcelona, however, with the presence of Luis Suarez in the final third of the field making it difficult for him to secure a regular spot.

Southampton have been linked with the 24-year-old over the last month or so, with the English club’s head coach Mark Hughes said to be a huge admirer of the Spaniard.

The Saints fans have been reacting to the transfer speculation on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are struggling to agree whether it would be a good deal.
