Southampton prepare offer for Blackburn striker Rhodes

Southampton are chasing Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes.

The Sun says Southampton could make a January move for Blackburn striker Rhodes, 24.

Saints boss Ronald Koeman has admitted he is in the market for a new striker signing.

He said: "I don't think that we need a defender, I don't think that we need a midfielder.

"It is only up-front we do not have a lot of options. I was waiting to have Jay Rodriguez back in January but his set-back means now that we need another one.

"That makes it a little bit more difficult for us and that's the reason that we are looking to bring in another attacker."
