Skysports.com understands Southampton are lining up a move for Coventry striker Lukas Jutkiewicz.
Jutkiewicz started his career at Southampton and was also born in the city so could be set for a return to his hometown club.
Southampton are looking for attacking reinforcements having failed in a bid for Doncaster's Billy Sharp and now Jutkiewicz is their top target.
The highly-rated striker had a spell at Everton when they signed him from Swindon as one of the most sought-after teenagers in the country.
He left Everton last summer for Coventry and, having impressed at the Ricoh Arena, he is still regarded as an extremely bright prospect for the future.
