The forward is in the Azzurri’s Euro 2016 squad this summer and is being linked with a move away from St Mary’s as he is about to enter the last year of his contract.

Pelle’s agent, Romualdo Corvino, has been quoted as saying both Everton and Stoke have expressed an interest, while there are also claims a lucrative move to China could happen.

Juventus have been mentioned as possible suitors but his agent has denied that speculation.

“With Juventus at the moment there is nothing,” Corvino told Italian radio station SportItalia. “However, there has been contact with Everton, Stoke City and China.”

The 30-year-old has scored 23 Premier League goals in two years at Southampton but, with no fresh contract offer on the table, his club future looks uncertain and Everton may attempt to lure him away this summer with an offer in the region of £7million.
