Kelechi Iheanacho could finally end up in Southampton if the swap deal reportedly been planned between the Saints and Manchester City sees the light of the day.

New boss, Mauricio Pellegrino wants a star forward in the mould of the Nigeria international.

Perhaps, City could be more interested in selling the Nigerian ace to the South Coast side if full-back Ryan Bertrand is part of the deal.

Pep Guardiola is a huge fan of the 27-year-old England defender, and sees him as an option if other targets prove difficult to get.

The ex-Barcelona boss is hoping to land Dani Alves, Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker all within the next three weeks.

According to The Sun, an Etihad source said: “Southampton are now part of a long list of clubs that want Kelechi this summer.

“If the right offer comes in, he will go, and Ryan Bertrand is an option that has been talked about in the past."
