According to Italian media outlet Tuttosport, Southampton are interested in signing Torino Iago Falque, and he would be the perfect replacement for the recently departed Dusan Tadic at St Mary's.

The 28-year-old was in scintillating form for the Serie A outfit last season, chipping in with 14 goals and 10 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions.

The Spaniard is a right winger by trade, but he can play anywhere along the front-line, and he would provide Mark Hughes an entirely different option in the final third.

He is technically competent, and plays with a certain type of directness that would undoubtedly help the Saints improve upon the potency of their attacking play.

Falque is also extensively experienced in playing at the very highest level for a sustained period of time - something that will undoubtedly prove to be an asset to what is a relatively young Southampton side.

According to Transfer Markt, he is valued at just £11.7 million, and in today's market, that would represent an absolute steal for the Saints.

Southampton will not have things all their own way in the chase for the Torino ace's signature, however, with West Ham and Leicester city also interested in obtaining his signature, according to Tuttosport.
