Southampton are making a surprise move for Estudiantes striker Duvan Zapata.

The Mirror says Zapata still hopes to land a Premier League club despite West Ham pulling out of a deal to sign him.

The Hammers aborted a £6.7million deal for Zapata with his Argentine club Estudiantes due to UK work permit problems.

Now top-flight rivals Southampton are investigating whether they could have more success beating red tape to land him.
