Premier League side Southampton could move for two players in the next few weeks - as boss Mauricio Pochettino plans to add more experience to his squad.

Iceland international Emil Hallfredsson is reportedly on Saints' radar, and is thought to be interested in a move back to England. 

Hallfredsson, who primarily plays on the wing, played for fellow Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur for two years. 

However, he failed to make an impression, having never actually played a game for Spurs. 

Hallfredsson will therefore be eager to take advantage of a potential second chance, although it is thought that Southampton may have to fight off competition from other Serie A clubs. Finances, however, are believed not to be a problem.

Pochettino - who was appointed boss of Southampton in January - is also pondering a move for Catania's 28-year-old forward Gonzalo Bergessio, who has played three times for Argentina.

Bergessio, who provided his team with a tidy 13 goals and six assists in 32 Serie A appearances last term, would provide cover and competition for Saints' current favoured striker Rickie Lambert, should a possible move materialise. 

Southampton have so far impressed in their transfer dealings, having secured the services of £12.5million Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama from Celtic as well as £8million-rated defender Dejan Lovren from Lyon.
