Dominic Solanke made his senior England debut last night in a friendly against Brazil.
It was a huge vote of confidence for the youngster, who joined Liverpool from Chelsea this summer.
Solanke has found it slow to break through at Liverpool since signing, and has played just 85 minutes of Premier League football.
A loan deal would be smart if he aims to make next summer's World Cup, and Southampton should look at making an offer.
Relations between the two clubs have not been great recently due to the Virgil van Dijk situation, but this could help repair the situation.
With their potentially eye still on signing Van Dijk long term, Liverpool may be more likely to accept an approach from Southampton than another club.
Southampton's need for a striker is clear, with the team averaging less than a goal scored per game.
The Saints have netted just nine goals in 11 matches, losing their last match 1-0 at home to Burnley.
Liverpool face Southampton this weekend and if Solanke is not involved after his England call, they should really begin planning a January move.
Solanke has Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge in front of him, as well as a potentially resurgent Danny Ings.
