Report: Leganes make loan approach for Southampton striker Guido Carrillo

Southampton have reportedly received an approach from Spanish club Leganes to loan attacker Guido Carrillo.

The 28-year-old spent all of last season on loan with the La Liga club, scoring six goals in 33 games across all competitions.

According to the Daily Echo, Leganes have approached the Saints about taking the Argentinian centre-forward on another loan spell.

It is understood that Southampton would prefer to sell the £19million flop on a permanent basis and cut their losses.

Carrillo didn’t get much of a chance at St Mary’s following his big-money move in 2018 and failed to score in any of his 10 appearances.

TBR’s View:

Carrillo doesn’t have the qualities to make a serious impact in the Premier League, as the pace and power of the division is far too much for some players.

He managed 21 goals in 95 games for Monaco before his £19million (BBC) move to Southampton, but it looks like they will take a sizeable hit on that price.

Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl needs the summer to put his own stamp on the side and looks the right man to move them forward in the Premier League.

It would be a surprise if Carrillo features in his plans, but selling him could prove a tricky obstacle to negotiate this summer.
