The Saints have been credited with an interest in the Guinea international by the Austrian press in the past, along with Swansea and Crystal Palace, as the 21-year-old has caught the eye with his energy and eye for goal for Salzburg this season.

According to Austrian media outlet Sportnet, the Gunners had scouts in attendance for Salzburg’s last game against Mattersburg before the international break and are planning to send represents back to check on Keita again before the season is over.

Should they table a bid for the midfielder, Southampton will hope to have an advantage over the rest of the chasing pack having already done business with Red Bull Salzburg when signing Sadio Mane in 2014.
