Southampton reportedly consider a move for 40-year-old free agent Willy Caballero following injuries to Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster.

Southampton are reportedly planning a move for ex-Chelsea and Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

The 40-year-old has been a free agent since departing the Blues at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, but not before collecting a Champions League winners' medal.

Southampton are currently dealing with injuries to their two main goalkeepers in Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster, with 23-year-old Harry Lewis representing Ralph Hasenhuttl's only fit senior option.

As a result, talkSPORT claims that Caballero is being eyed up by Saints chiefs, with the veteran's experience in between the sticks ideal amid Hasenhuttl's goalkeeping injury woes.

The ex-Argentina international made a total of 34 Premier League appearances during his time with Chelsea and City - keeping 13 clean sheets - but he only played one game in the top flight for Chelsea last term.

Caballero made 16 Premier League starts for Man City during the 2016-17 season, though, and he has won the Champions League, FA Cup, EFL Cup, Europa League and Copa Libertadores during his career.
