The English Premier League side are looking to tie up a deal for PSV striker Jurgen Locadia worth £14.1million.

The South Coast club had previously been interested in Celtic’s French forward and reportedly made an enquiry into the player’s availability last month.

However, they’ve since turned their attention to other targets as they seek to climb up the table.

Dembele has netted 40 goals in 70 appearances since joining in the 2016 summer window from Fulham.
