Southampton have made a move for Manchester City goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu with Fraser Forster completing his free transfer switch to Tottenham, Megasportsarena.com reports.
Bazunu has emerged as the south coast club’s leading goalkeeper target and they are understood to have lodged an opening offer for the 20-year-old who they are hoping to sign in a deal worth up to £10m.
He has spent the last two campaigns on loan in League One with Rochdale and then Portsmouth, where he was named their player of the season for 2021/22.
Southampton wanted to sign a young goalkeeper initially as a No 2 but also capable of challenging for the No 1 spot and believe Bazunu is one option who fits the bill.
While Southampton have made their first move for Bazunu they remain mindful that the ball is in City’s court and are still considering other options.
