Southampton are in the middle of a mixed season this term and are currently stranded at the 13th place in the Premier League. They have not been able to make a lasting impression this season and are struggling to get goals and some much-needed points to revive their season.
The Saints have been extremely goal shy this season and have managed to put the ball in the back of the net only nine times in their first eleven games. The gaffer, Mauricio Pellegrino has been wary of the lack of goalscorers in his side and is willing to make a few changes on the side in the near future.
The Argentine manager has been searching for a player, who can share the burden of scoring goals for his side with the Italian ace Manolo Gabbiadini and might make a bid for the Montenegro international Stevan Jovetic in the next transfer window. The player is currently playing for the French champions Monaco and might be interested in a move to the Premier League.
The 28-year-old joined the Ligue 1 club in the summer transfer window and was brought in as a replacement for the departed young sensation Kylian Mbappe. However, he has not been very effective for his current club and has managed to put the ball in the back of the opposition only once in his first six matches so far this season.
The Saints manager, however, has eyed the Montenegro star as his prime target for the next transfer window and is quite confident that his inclusion in the side can give them the much-needed sharpness in the attack, which has been lacking from the side since the start of the current season.
The South Coast club lost one of their aces in the form of Jay Rodriguez, who signed for West Bromwich Albion in the summer after having an injury-stricken campaign in the last term. The Saints have not been able to find a viable replacement for the Englishman and are interested in adding Stevan Jovetic to their attack in the next transfer window.
However, Monaco might not be willing to let go of their man so early and might reject any bid from the Saints in January. If the move happens, it will be a second stint for the ex-Manchester City striker, who made 44 appearances for the Citizens in all competitions.
But is he the right man for Southampton?
