SOUTHAMPTON will move for Nottingham Forest right-back Matty Cash when the auction starts for him.

Saints are looking for an attacking player in Cash’s mould, who could also play wing-back or even as a right-winger if needed.

Cash will be allowed to leave for around £12million.

West Ham have checked out the 22-year-old in the past but Saints are currently taking the bigger interest.

Cash burst onto the scene at Forest as a teenager in 2016, following good form while on loan in League Two with Dagenham & Redbridge.

Excellent Championship performances have followed, although Forest finished the season under a cloud after inexplicably blowing a play-off spot.

Nonetheless, Cash continued to impress in Sabri Lamouchi’s team.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have also been strongly linked with a move to make Kyle Walker-Peters’ loan move from Tottenham permanent.

Saints have also been linked with Weston McKennie

And the Saints have also been chasing American midfielder Weston McKennie, 21, but German side Schalke are holding out for a staggering £25m.

McKennie joined Schalke’s academy as a teen from FC Dallas in 2016, and has swiftly moved through the ranks at the German club.

Now a full international with 19 caps, McKennie has impressed in the Bundesliga, making 28 appearances this term.
