Southampton linked with swoop for Okereke

Southampton linked with swoop for Okereke Southampton appear to be keen on signing Spezia forward David Okereke, if reports in Italy are to be believed. In April, the club were reported to have sent scouts to watch the Nigerian in action for his side as they defeated Ascoli in a dramatic 3-2 victory. Okereke has earned plaudits in the past season for his displays in Serie B, and according to claims from Il Secolo XIX, as cited in a report from Derbyshire Live, the Saints are in the mix of teams who are keen to sign him this summer.

Southampton have made an approach to sign James Justin from Luton Town this summer, according to a report from Football Insider. Football Insider reports that Aston Villa have already made their move to sign Justin , with a £7.5 million offer on the table.

The 21-year-old is primarily a left-back but has also displayed his ability to operate on the right-hand side of the defence, with his versatility evidently an attractive quality for potential suitors.

Football Insider reports that Aston Villa have already made their move to sign Justin, with a £7.5 million offer on the table.

However, they will face competition from clubs in the Premier League if they are to recruit the defender, who featured in the League One Team of the Year.

Southampton are joined by Leicester City, Crystal Palace and recently-relegated Fulham in their apparent admiration of the youngster, whose contract at Luton expires next summer.

Leicester to secure the signing of James Justin this week.
Leicester City are set to hijack Aston Villa’s move for Luton Town’s James Justin and secure his services this week, according to Football Insider. Justin was understood to be a big target for Aston Villa heading into this summer. Villa made a £7.5 million bid for the right-back earlier in the window and they were said to be the frontrunners to sign him. But now Leicester have swooped in and are the club expected to sign Justin this summer, and they could finalise the deal as early as the end of this week. The 21-year-old has had a great season with Luton as they won the League One title to return to the Championship for the first time in 11 years.
