Thanks, James! Yes, this is turning into something of a changing of the guard for LA. Still plenty of quality on their roster though, and apparently a move for Ashley Cole may be in the works as well.

Solid move for Liverpool. Instant security at the right-back spot. Southampton lose yet another promising young star though.
in Liverpool Sign Nathaniel Clyne

Thanks for commenting guys. You both raise some great points. For Bertrand, I am aware that he was only recently signed. However, I still think that his youth, “homegrown” status, and solid recent play will make him a target for bigger clubs. I mean, his old club Chelsea clearly has no problems with signing back ex-players who perform well elsewhere (Matić, for example). Now, Fonte is a tricky one. There is definitely a case to be made for keeping him for all he’s done/is doing on the field, in the locker room, etc. I just personally think it is wise to at least evaluate a possible sale this summer. Even if he continues to play well despite his age, his transfer value will probably only decrease from here on out. If they choose to keep him for the long haul, great. But if they want to sell him, now is the time to do it. Finally, regarding Southampton’s strategy over the last 5 or so seasons, I agree that it has been pretty successful. I disagree with the idea that it will continue to be. Top-6 teams cannot afford to continually sell talent. Each transfer move has to be made with improvement in mind, not replacement. Thanks again for the feedback.
