It’s officially 2018! Happy new year from everyone at Saints Marching. But hangovers aside, the new transfer window is upon us!

Southampton had a fairly quiet summer last time around if truth be told – only two senior players were signed in Wesley Hoedt and Mario Lemina. Both have hit the ground running but the Saints definitely need reinforcements this January,

With zero attacking signings over the off-season and a handful of players misfiring this campaign, the Saints are in dire need of some fresh talent up-front.

That being said, a general reshuffle of the pack definitely wouldn’t go a miss, with Mauricio Pellegrino’s men recently linked with as many as five players over the past week or so.

These rumours will have been spring-boarded forward thanks to the Saints’ freshly-lined pockets. Just a week ago the Saints agreed a deal to let want-away defender Virgil van Dijk finally join Liverpool in a deal worth up to £75 million.

But with all those money, who should the Saints re-invest in? And should anyone else follow out the exit door? Saints Marching’s contributors offers their picks.
