Ronald Koeman will make Feyenoord striker Graziano Pelle his first signing as new Southampton manager.

Koeman intends to bring Feyenoord’s Italian striker Pelle with him to ­Southampton, to succeed target man Rickie Lambert, following his switch to Liverpool.

The 6ft 4in Pelle has scored 50 league goals in the last two seasons and is rated at £10m by Feyenoord.

But Koeman said: “I want to bring Pelle to my next club. I would love to have him there, as he would be worth every penny.”
