5. Samuel Edozie

Goals: 6 | Games: 36
The winger played for Millwall and Manchester City before he joined Southampton in 2022, signing a five-year contract for a reported £10million, according to the Manchester Evening News.

During his time with the Saints, he has scored six goals, as well as setting up three assists, mostly appearing as a substitute in his first season.

Last season Edozie began to start in most matches, and impressed with his ability to win fouls and play between the lines. He was also present for Southampton’s victory over Leeds in May.

Though he suffered an ankle injury in January, fans are expecting big things from him in the upcoming season.

“I think, before, when I first came into men’s football, for me it was more about just getting at players and trying to take them on – I didn’t think too much about what to do after,” Edozie said on the official Southampton website.

“But I think now, playing more games and getting a little bit more experience, it’s also about that end product.”

4. Will Smallbone

Goals: 7 | Games: 50
Central midfielder Will Smallbone started his career with Southampton in 2017, scoring his first goal against Huddersfield in a 2-0 FA Cup victory in January 2020.

He went on loan to Stoke City for the 2022/2023 season - where he scored three goals - before returning to Southampton with a three-year contract from September 2023.

During the 2023/2024 Championship season, he appeared 39 times and in that time netted five goals. This included a brilliant long-range goal against West Bromwich Albion which ensured Southampton reached the Championship Playoff Final.

Smallbone has credited Southampton manager Russell Martin for these goals.
He told BBC Radio Solent, "Scoring goals is something I've wanted to add to my game," Smallbone, 24, told BBC Radio Solent… there's been a big emphasis from the manager for me to get in the box more to get in those positions."

3. Ryan Fraser

Goals: 8 | Games: 44

The Scottish left winger was on a loan to Southampton from Newcastle last season, and in his time at the club, he made a big impact, scoring eight goals.

While it’s not yet confirmed, The Athletic reports that he may soon become a permanent fixture at Southampton - so watch this space.

5’4” Fraser has been described by former Scottish footballer Charlie Nicholas as “a little pocket dynamo” who can "take the knocks and kicks that come his way.”

2. Ché Adams

Goals: 18 | Games: 46
After playing for Sheffield United and Birmingham City, the forward signed with Southampton in 2019 for a reported £15million, where he’s gone on to big things.

He scored his first goal for Southampton in July 2020 from 40 yards, looping it over the Manchester United goalie, which took the Saints to a 1-0 victory.

Since then, a further 17 goals have followed. Kevin Wilson, the manager of Adams’ first club, Ilkeston, told the Sheffield Star that Adams has "pace in abundance, but he's really powerful too".

It’s now strongly rumoured that Adams - who also starred in Scotland’s 2024 Euros team - could soon be transferring to Wolves, according to Yahoo News.

1. Adam Armstrong

Goals: 24 | Games: 52
Striker Armstrong joined Southampton in 2021, and immediately set the tone for his career at the club, scoring in his opening match against Everton.

23 goals have followed since then to make him the current Southampton top scorer. Armstrong was responsible for the all-important winning goal against Leeds at Wembley in May that catapulted Southampton back into the Premier League.

The Daily Echo reports that Armstrong was “lost for words” when it happened. "I've said all week that the other goals I've scored this season would be forgotten about. They wouldn't mean anything,” he said.

"To get the winner at Wembley is every child's dream. It will take a while to settle in with having family and friends in the stand. I am lost for words.”
