Southampton have joined the race for sought-after Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho.
Iheanacho, 20, who is rated at around £25m, is already a target of West Ham, Everton and Leicester.
Saints have now joined the pack looking to snap the youngster up, with new boss Mauricio Pellegrino wanting a star forward for next season.
And City could be interested in selling the Nigerian ace to the South Coast side if full-back Ryan Bertrand was part of the deal.
Pep Guardiola is a huge fan of the 27-year-old England defender, and sees him as an option should other targets not be signed.
The ex-Barcelona boss is hoping to land Dani Alves, Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker all within the next three weeks.
An Etihad source said: “Southampton are now part of a long list of clubs that want Kelechi this summer.
“If the right offer comes in, he will go, and Ryan Bertrand is an option that has been talked about in the past.
