The Sun says Swansea and West Brom are ready to move for Cork.
The midfielder is inside the final year of his current Saints deal and yet to hear from the club about new terms.
Cork, 25, is also a target for Crystal Palace, which are willing to offer £3 million for his signing.
The midfielder was left on the bench for Sunday's defeat at Liverpool.
