Southampton fans will be partying long into the night after witnessing their side’s impressive performance against Arsenal, with three points helping their survival hopes massively.
One of the biggest problems for the Saints is their options at the pinnacle of the attack, as Danny Ings and Michael Obafemi currently find themselves out on the sidelines.
However, it looks as if the Saints already have their sights set on securing an attacker in the summer, but it’s not the type of player that fans would be hoping for, as according to the Daily Mail, Southampton have made an enquiry for Birmingham City youngster Ramello Mitchell.
Mitchell has all the ingredients to become a hero at St Mary’s with his pace and finishing ability catching the eye of many clubs. He’s only 16 years of age with the whole of his career ahead of him and he’s been standing out for Birmingham at Under-16 and Under-18 level throughout the season so far, with a number of goals to his name.
The Saints have a strong reputation for developing youngsters into special talents and it’s fair to say that he could be blessed with an opportunity in the first-team in the next few years, so a move to St Mary’s would make sense.
Southampton fans, can you see your side winning the race to sign the youngster?
