Southampton fans want club to secure Marega deal

According to The Mirror, Southampton are interested in signing Porto forward Moussa Marega in this summer’s transfer window.

Speculation surrounding Marega’s future has gathered pace over the last week, with West Ham United believed to be strongly interested in the powerful frontman.

Marega scored 22 times as Porto won the Portuguese title last season, and it is not a surprise that clubs are sniffing around the 27-year-old.

It has already been a fairly busy summer window for the Saints, with Jannik Vestergaard, Mohamed Elyounoussi, Angus Gunn and Stuart Armstrong joining the club.

However, it is understood that head coach Mark Hughes still wants to bring a centre-forward to St Mary’s, and 6ft ace Marega could form a very dangerous partnership with Charlie Austin in the final third of the field.

The Southampton fans have been airing their views on the transfer report, and a selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
