Saints boss Ronald Koeman is being linked with a deadline day move for Senegal international midfielder Sadio Mane.

The 22-year-old helped Salzburg win the Austrian League and cup last season, and in his two seasons at the club has scored an impressive 45 goals in 86 appearances.

Saints are believed to be keen to bring in two players before the transfer window slams shut tomorrow - a winger and a midfielder.

Koeman has made seven summer signings so far, but one of them - Inter Milan loanee Saphir Taider - is poised to return to Italy after just a few weeks on the south coast.
