Southampton urged to up the ante for Cagliari's Astori

Cagliari have asked Southampton to increase their offer if they want to secure the services of Davide Astori.

The Saints are believed to have offered around £8million for the 25-year old centre-back but the players agent Renzo Contratto suggests there will need to be an improved bid for negotiations to continue.

"There is an important offer from Southampton but we don't know if Cagliari want to let him go," he told Sky Sports.

"There is a big difference between the bid and the request of the Italian club, which is about £12million.

"If Cagliari were to accept Southampton's offer, Davide would be willing to consider the proposal.

"He would have no problem going to play in a foreign league such as the Premier League."
