Southampton’s starting XI based off of current transfer value

Southampton have just one game left of the regular Championship season.

The south coast club have enjoyed a largely successful season, but it has been marred somewhat by a recent downturn in form.

 

The Saints go into their final game of the season away at Leeds United on the back of three consecutive defeats which have consigned Russell Martin‘s side to a play-off place rather than automatic promotion.

Given Southampton finished bottom of the Premier League last season before overseeing a huge overhaul in staff and players, there are still many positives to take regardless of promotion.

However, Martin and co. will not want to extend their stay in the Championship beyond this season.

The league the club find themselves in will massively impact the transfer business Southampton are able to do in the summer and sales could be required to raise funds either way.

 

With that in mind, the Transfermarkt squad value tool has been used to determine Southampton’s most valuable starting XI based purely on current market value.

What is Southampton’s most valuable starting XI?

Whilst this team is based entirely off of transfer value, the players must have featured in that position previously.
