Three Quincy Promes alternatives Southampton could target on Deadline Day
According to reports in The Independent, Southampton are facing a race against time to bring top transfer target Quincy Promes to the club before Wednesday’s deadline, with Spartak Moscow reluctant to sell their star man.
The Independent says that Saints manager Mauricio Pellegrino wants to bring in another attacker before the window slams shut, to boost a team that has only scored 24 goals in 24 Premier League matches this season and currently lies in the relegation zone.
The report adds that while the 26-year-old, who has netted 58 goals in 115 games for the Russian Premier League side, is said to be keen on a move to St Mary’s, a deal is proving to be tough to negotiate with the deadline just hours away.
The south coast outfit could be forced to look elsewhere on Wednesday if they want to bring in the forward they look to so desperately need to boost their survival bid, and there are certainly plenty of players around that may still arrive at the club before 11pm.
