Southampton boss Pochettino steps up striker search

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino is desperate to find a new striker signing after their latest friendly.

Pochettino will intensify his striker search after ­toothless Saints slumped to their first pre-season defeat in Austria.

Last season's top-scorer Rickie Lambert was guilty of missing a second half sitter as Champions League qualifiers Schalke eased past the Saints 2-0.

Argentine Pochettino is in for £21m Brazil ace Leandro Damiao, Roma ace Pablo Osvaldo and Udinese hot shot Matej Vydra but has so far drawn a blank.
