Southampton have been linked with Catania striker Gonzalo Bergessio after being blocked in their bid to sign Leandro Damiao.
Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino is looking to bolster his attacking options in this summer transfer window and has been heavily linked with a bid for Internacional's £20million-rated Brazil international hitman Damiao.
However, following reports that Italian Serie A side Napoli were leading the chase for his services, it now looks like big-spenders Zenit St Petersburg are set to come in for his signature.
As a result Pochettino seems to be looking elsewhere and 28-year-old Argentina international, Bergessio, is being linked with a switch to St Mary's.
Italian Serie A side Catania do not want to lose their key player, whose goals played a key part in them registering a record points total in Serie A for the fifth consecutive season last term.
However they could be tempted if Saints match their valuation of the player with a sizeable bid.
