Southampton are close to a deal to buy Joe Aribo from Rangers for £6m plus add-ons and have announced the signing of Roméo Lavia from Manchester City. The fee for Lavia is an initial £12m and City have a £40m buyback clause.

Aribo, a Nigeria international, has been with Rangers since 2019 and previously played in League One for Charlton. The 25-year-old appeared in all 15 of Rangers’ games in the Europa League last season, starting 13, and scored in the final against Eintracht Frankfurt.

He began that match as a centre-forward and is capable of playing in variety of positions in midfield and attack.

The 18-year-old Lavia has played twice for City – starting in a 6-1 Carabao Cup victory over Wycombe, and a brief FA Cup substitute’s appearance against Swindon – and is a Belgium youth international. The defensive midfielder has a five-year contract and Southampton’s manager, Ralph Hasenhüttl, said: “We are very excited to sign him ahead of many other interested clubs.”
