On May 18th, Meczyki explained it is a ‘foregone conclusion’ that Fiorentina goalkeeper Bartłomiej Drągowski will move to Southampton in the summer window.

The Poland international has over 12 months left on his current deal and it looks like his future is away from the Serie A side.

La Nazione on Friday state the 24-year-old is the ‘first candidate’ for Southampton in the goalkeeping position.

Fraser Forster’s contract with the Saints expires on June 30th and is now close to joining Tottenham Hotspur on a free transfer, where he will likely replace Pierluigi Gollini in their squad.

Spurs took the Italian on the loan deal from Atalanta, but he will return to his parent club this summer.

La Nazione explain Drągowski is leading Southampton’s target list to take Forster’s place at St Mary’s Stadium next season.

With regards to the Pole, the report states the keeper ‘would come [or will arrive]’ at the club and it will cost Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side around €5m.

Drągowski made only nine appearances in all competitions for Fiorentina in the recently concluded campaign.
