It was being suggested yesterday that Southampton were now closing in quickly on Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn.

The 22-year-old has been linked with us previously in transfer speculation this summer following a stand out loan spell last campaign with Norwich City in the Championship. Whilst with the Canaries he made 51 appearances across all competitions with a number of clean sheets featuring.

The BBC have reported that he is yet to sign a new deal with the reigning Premier League champions, and he presumably doesn’t believe he’ll get a fair shot if he stays and fights for his place, as he’s behind both Ederson and Claudio Bravo in Pep Guardiola’s thoughts.

The England Under 21 international was invited to training with the senior side ahead of this summer’s World Cup out in Russia, so he will want to keep that momentum going now his stock is on the rise.

The speculation linking us with the young stopper has the fee listed as anything from £10million to £15million referenced.
