Southampton are reportedly to ready to spend some of the £75million they received for Virgil van Dijk on a new striker.

Mauricio Pellegrino has plenty of funds available after the Dutchman completed his move to Liverpool and Sky Sports claims that Monaco hotshot Guido Carrillo is a major Saints target.

The 26-year-old, who is valued at around £15million, played under Pellegrino during his two-year spell in charge of Estudiantes.

The report goes on to state that Southampton are desperate to bring in another striker to play alongside Charlie Austin after Manolo Gabbiadini and Shane Long’s struggles for goals this season.

As well as a new frontman, Saints are also said to be in the hunt for a new winger and a back-up option at right-back.
