Southampton Launch bid For Defender Frickson Erazo

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has tabled a £2.5m bid for Barcelona Sporting Club defender Frickson Erazo.

The Ecuador international, 24, has won 21 caps for his country and is rated one of the best stoppers in South America.

And Argentine Pochettino expects his Ecuadorian club to let him quit for the Premier League this summer.

The Saints chief is looking for a commanding figure to improve his defence and standing at 6ft 3in tall, Erazo fits the bill.

The stopper claimed in February that Manchester United had made contact to talk about a switch to Old Trafford.

But Southampton are now in the driving seat having already opened talks on a deal.
