While Southampton have been focused on adding forwards to their squad this summer, there’s also a need to move some on and Guido Carrillo is one such player.

The Argentine striker is the club’s record signing but his time at Saint Mary’s has not been a happy one and they are keen to end the relationship.

Last season saw him out on loan at Leganes where he scored six goals in 33 games and made a good impression on the La Liga club.

They’re keen to get him back next season but Southampton weren’t keen on a loan and wanted a sale, with their demands leaving the deal ‘in limbo’ according to the last reports on the move.

Now it seems Carrillo may have a different option in the form of Boca Juniors, with Toda Pasión reporting their interest in the striker.

They say the Argentinian club ‘would now enter fully to negotiate’ with Southampton for the striker as they look to sign a replacement for Darío Benedetto, as he’s off to Marseille.

Boca manager Gustavo Alfaro has already spoken with Carrillo to express his interest in bringing him to the club and there is an ‘open door’ for him to do so, should negotiations with Southampton go well. Carrillo is waiting to see how things go.

As has been reported, Southampton are keen to get rid but they’ve been trying to recoup most of the £19.8m they paid for him in January last year and that’s what was preventing a return to Leganés.

Boca will likely have more to spend than the Spanish side, particularly with the sale of Benedetto, but whether they’ll be willing to match Southampton’s price is debatable.

The player’s father, Marcelo, is quoted as saying: “I do not want to talk much because I don’t know what will happen. Initially the idea was to continue in Spain, but the decision will be made by Guido.”
