Saints still confident of signing Feyenoord striker Pelle

Daily Echo: Graziano Pelle Graziano Pelle

Saints remain confident of finalising a deal with Feyenoord for striker Graziano Pellè – despite negotiations dragging on.

Discussions between the clubs have been ongoing for around two weeks now, leading to suggestions that talks had stalled and that Saints had turned their attention elsewhere.

However, the Daily Echo understands that Pellè remains their number-one strike target and there was a growing confidence yesterday that a solution with Feyenoord would be found.

As previously reported, Saints increased their initial offer for the Italian, who turns 29 next week, to about £6.4m (€8m).

They believe that is a fair offer and do not wish to spend much more – especially as the player is likely to have little resale value, given his age.

Feyenoord are understood to want nearer £8m (€10m), knowing that there is pressure on Saints to deliver the signing for new manager Ronald Koeman, who this week got his hands on his other top target – FC Twente’s highly-rated playmaker Dusan Tadic.

However, a compromise on Pellè was said to be getting closer yesterday, with one source describing the deal as having moved from “50-50” to “75-25” in favour of it happening.

Pellè is fond of Feyenoord, but is understood to be keen to follow former boss Koeman to St Mary’s and test himself in the Premier League.

If a deal does happen, it will almost certainly not be confirmed until next week, although Saints will not wish for it to continue on much longer than that.

Pellè is an obvious replacement for Rickie Lambert, after he was sold to Liverpool earlier this summer.

The Feyenoord ace has enjoyed two spectacular seasons in the Eredevisie – the Dutch top flight – since arriving at the Rotterdam club.

In 57 appearances, he has bagged 50 goals, making the 6ft 4in star one of the most prolific frontmen across Europe in the past 24 months.

Last season, he also contributed six assists and laid on 57 chances in the league.

Koeman believes Pellè can translate much of that form to England’s top-flight with Saints.

As well as a striker, the club are also on the search for other additions.

As first revealed by the Echo, Saints want to sign a new goalkeeper this summer, with Celtic’s Fraser Forster and Cardiff’s David Marshall having been linked, although both would cost a significant amount.

They are also said to be interested in signing Norwich winger Nathan Redmond to boost their attacking options.

Offer another £1m - take it or leave it deal.

This was first reported 24/06 and seems to have dragged on. I have no doubt we are looking at other targets but Pelle seems to be our no.1 interest.

A fee rising to £6m inc add-ons for appearances is enough for a 29 year old who may only give us a couple of seasons. However a good replacement for Ricky especially if he can hold the ball up and win more in the air.

If we get Pelle on board we will have replaced Adam & Ricky so just one of the LB's in for Luke and we are back to last seasons level.

It is then important to get Morgan to sign an improved contract and make him captain.

Whether Lovren stays or goes just means we have to sign two instead of one CB.

Then add a good GK like Forster or Marshall plus a pacy winger (Redmond could be good) leaving another good striker (Danny Ings would be worth a punt) and we are there with an outlay that we can easily afford, leaving something for January if we need it.

Sort all these as soon as possible to give time to knit then into a stronger team ready to hit the ground running next season.

The Koeman Saints will then spring a surprise to many who think we have imploded !!

The issue we have at the moment is with Spider and Lovren.

We could possibly nett £45m for these two or equally they could both stay (if Liverpool don't up the price on Lovren and Ron offers Spider the right incentive)

Personally I would'nt want deadline day deals done for these two as what do you do with Lovren when we play Liverpool ?

Redmond from Norwich, Forster from Celtic and Pelle would all be good deals - that leaves it up in the air regarding DL and MS.

Hothead? the difference is that Pelle has played under RK for two seasons so he knows his man.
See we are interested in left back Bertrand at Chelsea valued at 8 million but have to wait and see if either Spurs or Liverpool get him first as they are preferred bidders both have tabled a fee of 6m Chelsea want 8.
I am wondering what happened to all these players Saints had lined up ready to drop in if players left? We lost 2 left backs last season so need 2 now. Whilst i understand in this day and age transfers take a long time to negotiate. For as club who had so many lined up in every position we seem to be taking an age.
With Sanchez going to Arsenal for 35 mil Barcelona are liable to hasten negotiations for Suaraz, which in turn will free up cash for Liverpool to come back for Lovren.

I read on Twitter last night that pelle was due in this morning for a physical with an announcement due this afternoon. €8mill with plenty of add ons. Don't know if true but hopefully going to happen.
I'd like us to put a cheeky bid in for Bertrand and Nick him away from diverpooh but would he come here? I would also love it if we didn't sell them the traitor, don't care if we take a bit less elsewhere just don't want to sell them anyone else or let him go there!

Diverpooh don't want to go above £6mill for Bertrand or £20mill for the traitor. Even though they still have money from the Suarez deal they were looking to offload Dirk kuyt to finance the extra £5mill we want for the traitor. You have to wonder why they need to sell another player to raise the money. With the extra we are asking and Bertrand they are still £10mill in profit from the vampire.

Replacing Lallana was No1 priority in my eyes and we've done that, now let's work on getting that striker 1 experienced one and 1 young one would be brilliant.

Totally agree - The list in situ would've been a Pinchatinny/Les list and Rambo has his own ideas so I guess that list will have to be re-written from scratch - add to this the player for whatever reason may not want to leave where he's at, then add his financial demands might be making Les wince, add to that the club has just said not for sale, add to that the dozens of other things we don't know about because we're not in the business and those making these lists are.
The management team has been hit not just with a manager or a team capt moving on we've been deluged by the whole senior management team going, the backbone of the team gone and a couple more not happy, all sorts of recriminations from a scenario we have no clue about (ie Katharina having to slap NC back into his box, his strutting off and the effect that has had reverberating through the club), the new training complex opening, the WC having a delaying effect to decisions, having to get a strip organized which we approve of, at very short notice and that on top of welcoming a new team of managers/coaches in and preparing for a new season on top of all the other crap. It's no surprise to me there have been delays and I guess when the dust as settled (by KO time in August) we should all have a round of applause ready for the back room boys rather than all the inconsiderate sniping so many of us seem to excel at.

The management team has been hit not just with a manager or a team capt moving on we've been deluged by the whole senior management team going, the backbone of the team gone and a couple more not happy, all sorts of recriminations from a scenario we have no clue about (ie Katharina having to slap NC back into his box, his strutting off and the effect that has had reverberating through the club), the new training complex opening, the WC having a delaying effect to decisions, having to get a strip organized which we approve of, at very short notice and that on top of welcoming a new team of managers/coaches in and preparing for a new season on top of all the other crap. It's no surprise to me there have been delays and I guess when the dust as settled (by KO time in August) we should all have a round of applause ready for the back room boys rather than all the inconsiderate sniping so many of us seem to excel at. jls217

Morgan and Dejan should go - I know how much Morgan means to us, but his conduct in this transfer window along with Adam and Dejan has been nothing short of appalling.

We had the fairy tale departure of Rickie Lambert, which I among the rest wish the best of luck and thank him with all my heart for the years of service at Saints.

We have a substantial transfer fund as it stands, with only Dusan Tadic to show for the weeks of farcical transfer action of outgoing players. But I like Koeman and Tadic seems to be a good player, like he says he wants to show on the pitch what he can do, rather than talk about his ability.

Pelle - I'm in two minds, I see a few comments eluding to the Osvaldo Incident and I can fully understand that, but Pelle doesn't seem so...idiotic and i'm sure Fonte will get on the Pelle just fine. His record speaks for itself and the Dutch league has a lot of quality in it so I'm hoping we can get this done without overspending on a 29 year old.

In my mind we need - LB, RB (cover), CB (Replace Dejan) x2, RW, ST x2

I thought Aaron Cresswell would have been a good option at LB.

But nevermind. New Away kit looks nice.

Like all of you I don't want us paying over the odds but c'mon Forster is arguably the second best English keeper available today. He seems to want to move and we need another keeper, so we pay the going amount. The jury is still out on Marshall - I would like us to have Forster or Ruddy not too fussed which.

I have mentioned before that Nathan Redmond at Norwich would be a good buy and in terms of a keeper then Ruddy or Forster would be my preferred choice over marshall...what's happening with caulker? all the rumours gone quiet and how about a punt on micah richards? we sorted at right back but I think he is best suited to a CB?

Even without knowing much about Pelle, I am confident he will be a better player than Andy Carrol.

Every EPL manager and his dog wants a striker but they are in short supply. A good loan deal would be Man City 22 year old striker John Guidetti who when on loan to Feyenoord coach Ronald Koeman describing him as "phenomenal" after being the first Feyenoord player to score three hat-tricks in one season since Dirk Kuyt .

Another loan player would be Arsenal's Joel Campbell also 22 years old. If Morgan wanted to leave (I hope he stays) maybe we could sort out a part exchange deal for Joel Campbell. Wenger owes us one.

Yes, it's time for the Manager/Board to move forward with a quick but steady stream of quality purchases.

If nothing else, the loyal fans would very much like to see something happening and to prove to all and sundry that we mean serious business in the new season.

Bitterly, totally disappointed at all the talk about Morgan. He seems to have grown up with the Club and I had felt that Captaincy of a mid table Club would have meant as much to him as a move.

I wonder if he feels that he didn't get more games for France was because he plays for us and perhaps he might hve got more if he was in a big London Club.

In any event, very sad about him in particular

Whilst i understand in this day and age transfers take a long time to negotiate. For as club who had so many lined up in every position we seem to be taking an age. With Sanchez going to Arsenal for 35 mil Barcelona are liable to hasten negotiations for Suaraz, which in turn will free up cash for Liverpool to come back for Lovren.

Totally agree - The list in situ would've been a Pinchatinny/Les list and Rambo has his own ideas so I guess that list will have to be re-written from scratch - add to this the player for whatever reason may not want to leave where he's at, then add his financial demands might be making Les wince, add to that the club has just said not for sale, add to that the dozens of other things we don't know about because we're not in the business and those making these lists are.
The management team has been hit not just with a manager or a team capt moving on we've been deluged by the whole senior management team going, the backbone of the team gone and a couple more not happy, all sorts of recriminations from a scenario we have no clue about (ie Katharina having to slap NC back into his box, his strutting off and the effect that has had reverberating through the club), the new training complex opening, the WC having a delaying effect to decisions, having to get a strip organized which we approve of, at very short notice and that on top of welcoming a new team of managers/coaches in and preparing for a new season on top of all the other crap. It's no surprise to me there have been delays and I guess when the dust as settled (by KO time in August) we should all have a round of applause ready for the back room boys rather than all the inconsiderate sniping so many of us seem to excel at.

Have to say I am liking the players we are being linked with much more this week....... I was concerned our core of English players approach may change following numerous links abroad....... But hearing us linked with Forster / Ruddy / Caulker / Ings / Redmond / Rodwell / Bertrand is a good thing..... Of course these are just rumours but there could be substance behind a handful of these. I for one would take all of these names in our squad and our summer of shopping would be done for me (of course along side signing pelle too). I can but dream!

Even without knowing much about Pelle, I am confident he will be a better player than Andy Carrol.

Every EPL manager and his dog wants a striker but they are in short supply. A good loan deal would be Man City 22 year old striker John Guidetti who when on loan to Feyenoord coach Ronald Koeman describing him as "phenomenal" after being the first Feyenoord player to score three hat-tricks in one season since Dirk Kuyt .

Another loan player would be Arsenal's Joel Campbell also 22 years old. If Morgan wanted to leave (I hope he stays) maybe we could sort out a part exchange deal for Joel Campbell. Wenger owes us one.
One of the problems with lots of loan players is the exodus at the end of the season.

My brother-in-law is a rugby fan. Says all those things and sticks his nose in the air when he does it, and adopts a superior attitude. He owns two cars, one for when he goes "Shooting", he's a beater, not a shooter. And another one for when he patronises expensive restaurants where he can't afford a starter. Or indeed afford to have the car serviced that got him to the restaurant.

Put that way, and as the contract is no longer worth the ink used on it maybe we should look at loaning a couple of players. Never thought it worthwhile until now.

29 shouldn't be a problem - if we get 3 seasons of 20+ goals that would be a fantastic return on £8m. Would be good to see the stats of how he did against the better teams in that division - did his scoring form carry over in games against the likes of Ajax or was he just whacking them in against the struggling sides? He did not have much a record prior to playing in Holland.
Are we going to bid for Redmond - he's a player I would like to see at our club - pace to get around the back of defences.

To my mind there is plenty of foul play and bad sportsmanship in rugby and I've seen players simulate being punched and tripped. And what about the 'bloodgate' episode - that was a massive scandal. In the end the huge amounts of money at stake bring out the worst in human nature- something that is common to all high profile sports.

Smack on mate and if Southampton had a rugby league outfit I'd pay to watch as football has been hijacked by self interest, and dirty money.
Couldn’t agree more, football is now all about corporate profits in the top leagues. The player power and their wages on the back of this are nauseous to the working class, but the stadiums are nice.
In the old days, the clubs were owned by averagely successful local business men who failed to re-invest heavily in the top leagues. The player power and their wages on the back of this were equivalent to the working class, but the stadiums were sh1te.
Progress gives with one hand and robs with the other.

Rugby Union is indeed a more honest game, but it lacks the passion and working class roots of the world game. Rugby League is also an honest game and has working class roots, sadly thought it’s as dull as dishwater.

My brother-in-law is a rugby fan. Says all those things and sticks his nose in the air when he does it, and adopts a superior attitude. He owns two cars, one for when he goes "Shooting", he's a beater, not a shooter. And another one for when he patronises expensive restaurants where he can't afford a starter. Or indeed afford to have the car serviced that got him to the restaurant.

Hey Poz
We don't need a weatherman
To know which way the wind blows.
A hard rain's a gonna fall.
To my mind there is plenty of foul play and bad sportsmanship in rugby and I've seen players simulate being punched and tripped. And what about the 'bloodgate' episode - that was a massive scandal. In the end the huge amounts of money at stake bring out the worst in human nature- something that is common to all high profile sports.
You might see the odd episode of foul play but sorry ,no way can you compare your average rugby player to your average footballer and if you do,you don't watch a lot of rugby

£64mill say Barcelona £75mill say diverpooh. skys Spanish football expert says it the barcelona figure, so its £64mill and diverpooh are trying to save face with their fans after spending over a 3rd of the money on liellana, who apparently went into Southampton airport today to catch a flight up north, and was welcomed `warmly` by 60 saints fans who were going on a stag do. they didn't abuse him much! ;0)

we now know why diverpooh are trying to get the traitor for £5mill less than we want. they obviously haven't got the money for the traitor as we screwed then for so much for lielanna.

it will be great to watch them fail in the champs league now and to be able to finish above them in the league!

Please do not sign this guy!! he is not good enough, basta!!! ok, he scored lots of goals in Holland but if you look at his record from when he played in Italy (a better league than the dutch one) he only bagged a few goals in two years.
Also at 29, is he too old? Would he be as hungry as a younger player?

I get why rugby fans are so dismissive, from cheating, simulating, bad sportsmanship, overwhelming greed and zero loaylty they do have a point.
My brother-in-law is a rugby fan. Says all those things and sticks his nose in the air when he does it, and adopts a superior attitude. He owns two cars, one for when he goes "Shooting", he's a beater, not a shooter. And another one for when he patronises expensive restaurants where he can't afford a starter. Or indeed afford to have the car serviced that got him to the restaurant.

Yes they do have a point, I agree, but they also have my brother-in-law.
He's only a pawn in their game George.
Hey Poz
We don't need a weatherman
To know which way the wind blows.
A hard rain's a gonna fall.
The answer my friend is Blowin' in the wind.
The answer is Blowin' in the wind.
The Wind of Change has become becalmed, we are in the Doldrums at the moment. We need a Michael Fish moment........
Hurricane.
If I can interject into your Dylan love-in bromance, you know he was influenced by the skunts when he wrote Like a Rolling Stone:

You used to laugh about,
Everybody that was hanging out,
Now you don’t talk so loud,
Now you don’t seem so proud,
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel?
They are remaining Nottarf "Desolation Row", cos they are all tangled up in blue. ;0)
Look out the Saints are coming through
And it's all over now Pompey Blue.
And as for Spuds,let's hope there's a crash on the Levy.
