Southampton

Blues striker on Saints radar

29th January 2019, 01:52 by Michael Holland

Ralph Hasenhuttl has refused to rule out Birmingham striker Che Adams joining Southampton before the deadline.

While January has been largely focused on trimming the squad, Saints are also looking at improvements and have targeted Birmingham forward Adams.

The 22-year-old joined City from Sheffield United in 2016 and has netted 14 goals in all competitions this term. Hasenhuttl insists any new recruits this month will be young players and only drafted in "if the baggage 100 percent fits".

When quizzed on Adams, the former RB Leipzig manager refused to deny any link, explaining: "A few players are interesting for us, for our way.

"I can guarantee to you it's normally a younger player, but the package must be perfect. We won't take any financial risk. We have created a bit of space where we can bring a new player in.

"If we do so it's only if the baggage 100 percent fits us. If not, then we won't do anything. If we are 100 percent sure that a guy that will help us, then we will do it.

"You can be sure that we have our eyes open, but if we don't sign a player in this window maybe we'll do it in the summer. To do it now can also be a possibility."
