Southampton are poised to join the chase for highly-rated striker Henry Onyekuru.

Celtic made a bid for the Eupen starlet in January and it's believed he was keen on a move to the Premiership champions.

But the Saints are said to be keeping tabs on a player who has improved his burgeoning reputation this season.

The 19-year-old forward has attracted rave reviews for his performances in Belgium where he has been tipped to become the country’s Player of the Year.

Onyekuru, rated at around £7million by his club, has scored 12 goals this season and his skills have led to a host of clubs keeping tabs on him.
