Saints Scouting French Striker
Monday, 3rd Jul 2017 23:09
The whisper in France is that Saints are looking at replacing Jay Rodriguez with the latest wonderkid from France.
The man in question is Yann Karamoh (born 8 July 1998) who is an Ivorian-born French footballer who plays as a striker for Caen in Ligue 1.
He broke into the Caen side at the start of last season and was a regular in Ligue 1.
Karamoh only has a year left on his contract and could be available for around £8.5 million.
Everton and West Brom have looked at him as have Arsenal who consider him a little inexperienced at the moment.
What attracts him to a move to St Mary's though is the fact that he will be straight into contention for the first team squad something that he may not get at either big spending Everton or Arsenal who are under pressure to start attracting big names to the club rather than potential !
The player who will turn 19 in a few days can operate either as a right winger of a striker, the fact that Saints are considering a bid will suggest that Dusan Tadic could be on his way out of the door at St Mary's.

Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
A New Hope At the Liberty? by BarneyLW
A feeling of déjà vu rose with the sun over Swansea this morning. Another manager out the door, another few days of links, speculation, supposed sightings of candidates spotted outside Rossi’s sampling the scampi. But for the first time in recent memory, there is hope in the air.
Swans Fans Were Angry- In A Totally Positive Way How a Common Enemy Helped Guidolin’s side pull of by BarneyLW
A return from the international break, which in truth was needed to clear the air around the club. A frustrating transfer market compounded and exacerbated back-to-back defeats against Hull City and the champions, Leicester. Boardroom shake-ups and a tough run of games has given the Jack Army little to be optimistic about.
