The south coast club currently lie in the bottom three after scoring 24 goals in 24 Premier League matches this season, and manager Mauricio Pellegrino will be determined to boost his attacking options before next Wednesday to boost his team’s survival chances.

The report adds that Dortmund are also willing to pay part of his current £140,000-a-week wages, and Pellegrino could be making a shrewd move by bringing him to St Mary’s.
