Southampton are keen on Udinese fullback Pablo Armero.

The Mirror says Ronald Koeman wants Colombia World Cup star Armero to replace Luke Shaw at Southampton.

Koeman plans a £5million bid for Udinese left-back Armero, who helped Colombia reach the quarter-finals in Brazil.

Dutch legend Koeman has a £70m transfer war-chest after the Saints' summer sales of Shaw to Manchester United and Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana to Liverpool.
