Southampton will be looking for potential players to add to their current squad with the January transfer window now open.
Many players will be linked with the club, although it would be foolish to expect more than one or two to come through the door in a market severely affected by the pandemic and where loan deals will take priority.
Ralph Hasenhuttl prefers a tight group where there are two quality options competing for each position in his team but additions will be crucial in keeping up Saints’ current superb form in the second half of this 2020/21 season.
Teams still have three weeks to get their business done and there will surely be at least some movement on the South Coast.
