Southampton clear favourites to land Spezia striker David Okereke

Southampton are regarded as favourites to land Spezia striker David Okereke.

The young forward is a target for Sassuolo, though they're falling behind Saints in the race for his signature.

Okereke favours a move to England and Southampton are happy to outbid all rivals to convince Spezia to sell.

Saints will offer £15m to sign Okereke, with the offer far outstripping what Serie ASassuolo can put together.

Okereke, 21, moved to Italy from Nigeria.
