The 2017–18 Southampton F.C. season is the club's ongoing 19th season in the Premier League and their 41st in the top division of English football. In addition to the Premier League, the club will also compete in the FA Cup and competed in the EFL Cup. The season is the club's first with manager Mauricio Pellegrino, who replaced the departed Claude Puel after one season in charge on 23 June 2017. As of 16 September 2017, Southampton are ninth in the Premier League table having won two, drawn two and lost one of their first five matches of the season. They were knocked out of the EFL Cup in the second round by Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Following the end of the 2016–17 season, Southampton released four players: centre-back Martín Cáceres, winger Lloyd Isgrove, right-back Cuco Martina and striker Harley Willard. During the summer transfer window, the club sold right-back Jason McCarthy to Barnsley for an undisclosed fee, striker Jay Rodriguez to West Bromwich Albion for £12 million, and Argentine goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga to Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee. Five players were sent out on season-long loans – midfielder Harrison Reed to Norwich City, goalkeeper Harry Lewis to Scottish club Dundee United, striker Ryan Seager to Milton Keynes Dons, striker Sam Gallagher to Birmingham City, and midfielder Jordy Clasie to Belgian side Club Brugge – while striker Olufela Olomola joined Yeovil Town on loan until January.

Southampton's first signing of the summer transfer window was Polish centre-back Jan Bednarek, who joined from Lech Poznań for £5 million on 1 July. The club's second signing followed on 8 August, when Gabonese defensive midfielder Mario Lemina joined from Italian club Juventus for an initial fee of £15.4 million, which could increase to a club record of £18.1 million based on performance. On 14 August, Southampton signed free agent goalkeeper Jack Rose, who had most recently played for West Bromwich Albion. The following week, the club signed Dutch centre-back Wesley Hoedt from Italian side Lazio for £15 million.
