Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl looks unimpressed

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side are looking for a new shot-stopper in Fraser Forster who is expected to leave the club, and Taylor believes the Poland international is a real option for Saints.

What’s the latest news about Dragowski?

According to BBC Sport, Forster recently underwent a medical ahead of a proposed transfer to Spurs and he is expected to join Antonio Conte’s squad in the coming days.

As a result, Southampton are in need of a replacement and have turned to Dragowski, with the Telegraph reporting that Saints are considering a £10m deal for the 24-year-old goalkeeper.

The report says sources at the Italian club may find it difficult to prevent him from joining the Premier League club, while the Polish journalist Tomasz Wlodarczyk believes he will sign for the Saints.

Dragowski, who is about to enter the final 12 months of his contract, lost his place in the squad in October and has only played four times in 2022.

Consequently, Taylor expects interest from Southampton to increase over the coming weeks, although he said they face competition from newly-promoted Bournemouth.

What did Taylor say about Dragowski?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “Dragowski is a player they are likely to solidify their interest in. I am in contact with his agent and he is waiting for something to change.

“He has been made aware of interest from Southampton and Bournemouth but there is nothing concrete at the moment, although Forster is moving on, expect Southampton to bolster their interest.”

Could Dragowski fight for the top spot?

As of now, it looks like Dragowski will arrive as a replacement for Forster and nothing more than a replacement for Alex McCarthy.

When fit, McCarthy has usually been Hasenhuttl’s first choice, so the Pole would therefore provide competition and cover for the former Palace ace, with the majority of his playing time likely to be in sections.

Apart from a brief stint towards the end of the 2020-21 season, Hasenhuttl usually doesn’t change goalkeepers, although McCarthy didn’t exactly rip trees when he played, keeping just five clean sheets and conceding 27 goals. in its 17th league. released last quarter.

Moreover, Southampton have only tasted victory three times in that span, so Dragowski could become an option if the Saints’ poor record with McCarthy in the squad continues.
