Yet Another Linked to St Mary's From Spain
Tuesday, 11th Jul 2017 21:15
Saints are being linked with just about every available player in Spain and here is news of the latest, this time from Athletico Madrid.
Saints are being linked with Luciano Vietto from Spanish giants Athletico Madrid, the Argentinian striker who will turn 24 in December spent last season on loan at Sevilla where he scored 6 times in 21 La Liga games, 14 starts & 7 from the bench.
Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekoh has tweeted to say Saints are in talks with Athletico Madrid
"Southampton in talks to sign Atlético Madrid striker Luciano Vietto. Scored 10 goals on loan at Sevilla last season. Sampdoria want him too"
Vietto started his career in his native Argentina and joined Villareal in Spain in 2014 for 5.5 million euros, 12 goals in 32 league games earned him a 20 million Euro move to Athletico Madrid, but he struggled to get into their side scoring just once in 19 La Liga appearances leading to spending last year out on loan.
Saints are now being linked with a striker who at 5ft 8 1/2 inches appears to be a pocket battleship rather than a target man.
How much he will cost is open for negotiation but if Saints are in talks then this looks to be one of those signings that come in under the radar.

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.
Guidolin and Conte- An Italian Managerial Head to Head by BarneyLW
A different league in a different country for two familiar foes; on Sunday Francesco Guidolin's Swansea host Antonio Conte's Chelsea side. So how does the head to head record look from their previous encounters in Italy?
The Mood: What's going on at Swansea City? by BarneyLW
There is nothing new or indeed out of the ordinary with a defeat being met by raucous displeasure among the Jack Army. There is nothing particularly new about a hyperbolic spread of opinion in where things should be going better, or if things really are that bad at all. But there is a strange feeling around Swansea City at the moment.
