The transfer rumour mill is in overdrive once again, so the Daily Echo is helping all Saints fans keep tabs on who the club has been linked to.

Below we'll list all the rumours about who could be joining and leaving St Mary's this January, as Saints try to improve their squad as they battle against relegation.

Theo Walcott was Saints' main target this month but the Arsenal man is closing in on a big-money move to Everton.

Among the latest rumours is that Saints have "asked" about the availability of Atletico Madrid striker Kevin Gameiro.
