Nathan Redmond has emerged as a top target for Southampton, The Times report.

Norwich City are open to cashing in on Redmond, along with Robbie Brady and Cameron Jerome.

Stoke, West Ham, and Crystal Palace are also keen on the winger and their interest has been previously reported. The Times claim Southampton and Stoke lead the chase.

Redmond is one of Norwich's top talents and could command a fee in the region of £10 million.

He made 24 starts in the Premier League last season, scoring six goals and providing three assists, although could not prevent the Canaries suffering relegation.

Redmond is 22-years-old and has been a regular part of the England under-21 set up until now, and will want a Premier League move if he is to stand a chance of breaking into the senior squad.

Southampton could be a good move for him with the club having a proven track record of bringing through young talent, while he would also fit into their buying strategy.

Redmond could potentially replace Sadio Mane if he moves on, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool, by The Express.
