Southampton will hold talks on Monday with Marseille's Egyptian striker Mido according to the player's agent.
Christophe Henrotay claims the south-coast Premiership outfit are leading the chase for his client, real name Ahmed Hossam, who scored seven goals in
17 games in the French Ligue 1 last season.
Mido was strongly linked with a move to Newcastle, but the Tyneside club have failed to come to an agreement with Marseille over the move, and
Henrotay believes "it's going to be difficult" to resurrect the proposed switch to St James' Park.
