Southampton might become massive players during the upcoming January transfer window, as they have a significant amount of money to spend following the move that sent Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool.

The Saints will have approximately £75 million to bolster their current squad, and they have already identified a list of targets for the upcoming weeks. The first one comes from Liverpool, as they are quite interested in acquiring Daniel Sturridge in order to bolster their attacking corps.

A former England international, Sturridge has struggled to settled as a regular starter for Jurgen Klopp, and he would certainly welcome a move elsewhere in order to increase his chances of a World Cup berth.

Two other names that have been linked with a move to Southampton are Arsenal winger Theo Walcott, and Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw. Both are out of favour in their current teams and, like Sturridge, would certainly welcome an exit to get some much-needed first-team football.

Other names that have been mentioned as potential arrivals in the next few weeks are Ryan Sessegnon, Alfie Mawson, and Moussa Dembele. The Fulham wonderkid might not be attainable, however, as both Real Madrid and Manchester United lead the queue for the 17-year-old.

Mawson and Dembele might be more achieveable target, but The Saints would have to out-bid their competitors to land them. But it sounds like something they are willing to do, since the team needs to strengthen after winning just one of their last 11 matches.
