Nice's brilliant young left back Timothée Kolodziejczak is a target for Southampton.

The Mirror says Saints have been in direct contact with the French club for the under-20 international and are willing to pay around £6 million.

Kolodziejczak came through the ranks at Lyon before joining Nice and is ready to move at the age of 22 - with the Premier League his favoured destination.

Nicknamed Kolo he is seen as an ideal replacement for young England left back Luke Shaw, whose move to Manchester United is being lined up.
