Southampton are reportedly looking to part ways with Angus Gunn in the upcoming transfer window to accommodate the return of Fraser Forster.

Gunn made the move to join Southampton in a £10 million deal in 2018, and has managed over 30 appearances for the Saints across all competitions.

However, he has been restricted to just three Cup appearances after shipping in nine goals against Leicester City in the Premier League in October, with Alex McCarthy taking his place in between the sticks for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team since then.


And The Sun is reporting that Southampton are willing to sell the former Manchester City shot-stopper ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

The circulating rumours also suggest that Hasenhuttl is prepared to being back Forster into the team after his much improved performances while on loan at Celtic.

The Scottish side are also looking to make the former England international’s move permanent next season, but that will be only possible if the south coast club fail to find a buyer for Gunn.


Forster played 27 times for Neil Lennon’s team as they held 13 point lead over Rangers before the outbreak of the coronavirus which led to the cancellation of the Scottish league season.

Gunn had previously enjoyed loan spell at Norwich City in the 2018/19 season, before deciding to join Southampton on a permanent deal.
