Southampton eye up moves for Arsenal and Liverpool attackers

Southampton are looking to spend some of their £75 million Virgil Van Dijk windfall on two England internationals.

The Saints are looking to buck the trend and take a player from Liverpool for a change, according to reports in the Telegraph. Talented striker Daniel Sturridge is the man the South Coast club are targeting to solve their problems in front of goal.

The 28-year-old has struggled for form and fitness under Jurgen Klopp, and is said to be available on either loan or as a permanent transfer in January.

Former Saints star Theo Walcott is the other attacker the club are keen to sign to bolster their forward options.

The 28-year-old began his career at St.Marys before moving to Arsenal as a 17-year-old for £12 million in 2006.

Walcott has scored over 100 goals for The Gunners, although the general feeling is that he has never quite fulfilled his potential, and he has slipped down the pecking order at The Emirates this season.

Again Southampton are interested in either a loan or permanent deal for their former player when the transfer window opens in a few days.
