The other week Southampton were linked with a move for highly rated Fiorentina goalkeeper Bartlomiej Dragowski.
The 21-year-old stopper impressed this year during a loan spell out with Serie A side Empoli, making 14 appearances for them in their league campaign, as he built on three showings with his parent club.

The original link seemed to imply manager Ralph Hasenhuttl was looking to move both Fraser Forster (known) and Alex McCarthy potentially on, and that outlook on the rumour has only been strengthened with his recent words about Angus Gunn.
A more recent claim has added fuel to the fire, suggesting the player is keen on a transfer to the club, and that talks on a speculated 10million Euro deal (plus clauses) are now nearing a conclusion.
The Italian outlet claims that we’ve stepped ahead of Roma on the transfer and they believe it could now be completed before the end of this week.
It appears to be a rumour that now won’t go away.
