According to The Daily Express, Southampton are interested in signing PSV winger Noni Madueke this summer.
The Lowdown: Saints in gear
After a slow start to the summer transfer window, the Saints have finally got themselves into gear and are starting to shape their squad.
They have now brought in five new faces (Sky Sports), the latest being Adam Armstrong from Blackburn (southamptonfc.com), and with just under three weeks left of the window, there may be time for even more.
The Latest: Saints eye Madueke
As per this latest report, Southampton are looking at Madueke, while Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund are also in the race.
However, the Eredivisie outfit are adamant they will not sell the 19-year-old after already parting ways with Donyell Malen, who moved to Dortmund (bvb.de).
The Verdict: Up-and-coming talent
Despite being an England U21 international, Madueke has actually never made a professional appearance in his home country, instead taking the decision to move to the Netherlands at a young age.
It is a move that has so far paid off – he has managed 13 goals and nine assists in 41 appearances, and has already bagged four goals in five matches this season (Transfermarkt).
Would you like to sign Madueke?
Valued at £14.4m (Transfermarkt), it is not clear exactly how much the winger would cost, but he is a player full of talent. Compared to Dutch legend Arjen Robben (footviz.com), Madueke has the world at his feet – could his next step be a move to Southampton?
