Southampton are keeping tabs on Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon, who they feel can solidify their shaky backline, according to The Sun.
The newly-promoted side have conceded 14 goals in their first four games back in the Premier League, and Nigel Adkins is considering bolstering his rearguard when possible to cut the shipping of goals.
Gordon was a big-money signing for Sunderland back when Roy Keane was in charge of the side, but has struggled in England due to niggling injuries and dips in form.
Adkins hopes to offer Gordon a lifeline at St Mary’s and feels that the Scot will offer competition to current Saints stopper Kelvin Davis.
Southampton were beaten thoroughly 6-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
