Southampton are likely to make a fresh move for Birmingham City striker Che Adams if they stay in the Premier League, according to a report from The Mirror.
The Saints had been chasing a deal for the 22-year-old throughout the January transfer window but have so far failed in their efforts.
Adams has been in exceptional form for Garry Monk’s side this season. He has found the net on 15 occasions in the Championship and leads the way as Birmingham’s top goalscorer.
The Mirror’s report states that Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl had identified the former Sheffield United man as his primary transfer target this month.
However, it seems the Austrian may have to wait until the summer to see Southampton return with a bid for Adams.
A relegation battle is still on the cards for the Saints, and they will be hopeful of keeping their heads above water before seemingly making a fresh pursuit of the young striker.
