Southampton: Angus Gunn on verge of joining Norwich City

The Southampton goalkeeper has not been with the club for some time now and it looks like he will finally move onto another club this summer.

Angus Gunn has had an interesting time with Southampton and it looks like he will be leaving the club this summer for Premier League newcomers, Norwich.

According to a new report from The Athletic, the fee for the goalkeeper will be around £5m and could raise to around £10m if clauses are met.

Southampton acquired Gunn from Manchester City a few summers ago believing he would be the goalkeeper of the future. He showed glimpses of promise and got the fanbase excited about his potential.

Then that match against Leicester happened and it really started to go downhill from there. He only made a couple of appearances after that match and then he spent time out on loan.

This is probably the right move for both the club and the player. Southampton will get some money for him and Gunn will get a fresh start at a new club where he can prove himself and earn playing time at the top flight.

With the imminent departure of Gunn, that means Forster and McCarthy will likely be fighting for the number 1 spot for at least this season. They are both aging goalkeepers but are more than serviceable at the Premier League level.

It should be noted that Angus Gunn’s father did play for Norwich and is highly regarded by the fanbase. This could be one of the reasons for the move in addition to the club seeing potential in the English keeper.
