AC Milan have made a move for Saints target Davide Astori, according to reports in Italy.

The Cagliari defender, who is valued at in excess of £10m, was among the players Saints were interested in signing last January.

In the end, Astori remained with the Serie A side, but the 26-year-old is expected to leave this summer.

Astori, who began his career with AC Milan, is again said to have attracted the attention of the Rossoneri.

Milan had previously been interested in the player, and have claimed before that they have first option on the centre half, should he wish to leave Cagliari.

Manchester City have also been linked this week with a move for the player to replace Joleon Lescott, should he depart the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season.

Saints wish to strengthen the heart of their defence this summer too, and could attempt to rival Milan and City for the Italian international’s signature.

Astori has made 30 appearances for Cagliari in Serie A this season, helping the club to a comfortable mid-table position.

Think we could probably compete in the transfer fee, but doubt if we could on the wages.

now now, leave the skate alone.
If he wants to huddle in the corner clutching his precious and fight against his inferiority complex you boys go and play with the other big boys in the Premier League.

As for the story, the summer is going to be full of this. Once more it ain't true until they are standing at St Mary's holding the shirt. You all know that NC plays his cards close to his chest on transfers.

Oh must we? OK then. Back to the Mighty Saints. I think it's half the fun of the close season hearing all the rumours whether they are fiction or not. Did you know that the Skunts are after Gazza. Not in too good a shape at the moment but what a great history. Oh sorryI forgot. I'll try harder in fuure.

We are heading for the barrage of rumours that the transfer market brings. Remember January Saints signed Forren and what a buy that was! Gaston 12 million another great buy - not! What money will be wasted this summer? That assumes of course that the club does actually have any money. I won't hold my breath!
