Southampton set to raid Manchester City for Fraser Forster replacement



Southampton have seemingly replaced Fraser Forster less than 24 hours after he was confirmed to be joining Tottenham in the shape of Manchester City youngster Gavin Bazunu.

The 34-year-old has penned a two year deal in north London after 134 appearances for the Saints, and has left Southampton with only Alex McCarthy as a recognised option in goal.

Not for long, however, if reports are to be believed. The south coast outfit are thought to be close to signing young Manchester City goalkeeper Gavin Bazunu in a deal that could cost up to £10m once add ons are fulfilled.

Bazunu spent last season on loan with League One side Portsmouth, in a season where he managed 16 clean sheets. He stole the headlines, however, while on international duty where he saved a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo to deny him the all-time goalscoring record, though he managed it later in that game.

Unlikely to unseat Ederson any time soon in between the posts for Pep Guardiola’s side, a move away seems necessary for Bazunu, while Southampton have shown with Tino Livramento and Armando Broja that they are not averse to handing youngsters plenty of responsibility.
