Southampton go for Man City striker Liam Delap

Southampton are moving for Manchester City striker Liam Delap.

The Sun says Ralph Hasenhuttl has moved to target some of the best young players in the Premier League over the past year and it appears that Delap, 19, is the next in his sights.

The Saints snapped up Tino Livramento from Chelsea last season for £5million and also took Armando Broja from the Blues on loan.

Full-back Livramento, 19, was a sensation before his devastating ACL injury last month while Albanian Broja, 20, has nine goals in all competitions.

Hasenhuttl is desperate to bring Broja back to St Mary's next season but faces competition from West Ham and a number of clubs in Europe for the Chelsea striker, meaning they could have to look elsewhere.

Delap, 19, has six first team appearances for City and one goal - scored against Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup in September 2020.

The England U19 international has eight goals and two assists in 10 Premier League 2 games for the City youth side this season.
