Latest report coming out of London has it that Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho could be swapped with Southampton full-back Ryan Bertrand.

This means the Nigerian striker could finally wear the jersey of Southampton next season.

Southampton new boss, Mauricio Pellegrino wants a star forward in the mould of the Nigeria international.

But City could be more interested in selling the 20-year-old Nigerian to the South Coast side if full-back Ryan Bertrand is part of the deal.

Pep Guardiola is a huge fan of the 27-year-old England defender, and sees him as an option if other targets prove difficult to get.

The ex-Barcelona boss is hoping to land Dani Alves, Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker all within the next three weeks.

-Southampton are now part of a long list of clubs that want Kelechi this summer, according to The Sun, an Etihad source said.

-If the right offer comes in, he will go, and Ryan Bertrand is an option that has been talked about in the past.
