Southampton table bid for Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is interested in Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo.

Koeman likes Rojo's versatility, with the Argentina international comfortable at left-back and centre-half.

The Saints manager needs to find defensive cover after losing Luke Shaw to Manchester United, Calum Chambers to Arsenal and Dejan Lovren to Liverpool.

O Jogo says Southampton have opened talks with Sporting over a €15 million deal for Rojo.

Sporting are prepared to sell the World Cup veteran before the start of the season.
