Southampton in Talks for Double Raid on Swansea: Joel Piroe and Nathan Wood

, Southampton in Talks for Double Raid on Swansea: Joel Piroe and Nathan Wood

The Saints Eyeing Dutch Striker Piroe

Southampton is in talks to secure the signing of Joel Piroe from Swansea. The 24-year-old Dutch striker, who scored 20 goals last season, is considered an ideal replacement for Che Adams on the south coast. However, Swansea is expected to demand around £20 million for Piroe, who has just one year left on his contract.

Southampton's Interest in Nathan Wood

Southampton is also in discussions with Swansea over a potential deal for Nathan Wood. The 20-year-old defender is highly sought after and would provide much-needed reinforcements to Southampton's squad following a number of recent departures. The Saints are willing to offer £15 million for Wood, but Swansea may hold out for a higher fee.

Southampton's Previous Swansea Signings

Southampton has already secured the services of two former Swansea players this summer. Ryan Manning joined the club on a free transfer, while Flynn Downes arrived on loan from West Ham. These acquisitions have further fueled Southampton's interest in Piroe and Wood, as the club looks to strengthen its squad for the upcoming season.

Competition from Everton and Crystal Palace for Che Adams

Southampton's pursuit of Joel Piroe is fueled by the potential departure of Che Adams. Both Everton and Crystal Palace are interested in signing the Southampton striker for £15 million. Adams, who has already scored three goals in three games this season, has concerns about Everton's start to the season, which has led to ongoing talks between the two clubs.

Southampton's Desire to Reinforce the Squad

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is keen to add to his squad following the departures of Tino Livramento, James Ward-Prowse, and Romeo Lavia. The club has been actively looking to bring in new players, with the futures of Kyle Walker-Peters and Nathan Tella also uncertain due to increasing interest from other clubs. A double deal for Piroe and Wood would be a significant step towards strengthening Southampton's squad for the challenges ahead.
