St Mary’s boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to land one of the two wingers as he prepares to cash-in on Jason Puncheon, who is on loan at Crystal Palace, and Italian Gaston Ramirez.

Nigerian international Moses is on loan at Liverpool but has barely featured and is likely to see even less first team action on his return to Stamford Bridge and therefore a move to Southampton could well tempt the 23 year old, who has made just six Premier League starts this term.

Marko Marin is on loan at La Liga side Sevilla and much like Moses the German has struggled to secure regular first team football with only five of his domestic league appearances being starts.

The flying pint sized attacker is similarly unlikely to be part of Jose Mourinho’s plans and again may feel that a move to the South Coast could reinvigorate his career.

Southampton’s chances of landing either of the pair could depend on just how well they finish the current campaign. Pochettino’s side started with a flyer and were in or around the six for much of the first few months of the season but have since hit an inconsistent spell of form and now sit in ninth spot.
