Walcott in Everton negotiations, Southampton fans react

It has been a rather lacklustre season for Southampton so far as they have failed to impress on the pitch.

Manager Mauricio Pellegrino, who was appointed as Claude Puel’s successor last summer has come under fire from the club’s following over results and style of play.

The team have not won a Premier League games since November, and as a result, the Saints sit one place above the relegation zone due to a better goal difference than Stoke City.

Pellegrino has an opportunity to turn things around by bringing in some new players this month that will boost the squad.

One man who BBC Sport claims is wanted by Southampton is Theo Walcott – a former academy graduate who joined Arsenal in 2006.

The coastal club have been dealt a blow in their rumoured pursuit, as Everton manager Sam Allardyce confirmed in a press conference that the Toffees are in talks with the Gunners over a permanent deal for Walcott.

Southampton fans have been tweeting their reactions.
