Former Brighton & Hove Albion boss Oscar Garcia has set his sights on replacing Mauricio Pochettino at Southampton should he leave the club this summer, according to a report.

Garcia resigned from his post as the Seagulls boss following their playoff semi-final defeat to Derby County and has already been linked with several clubs.

However, the 41-year-old wants to replace Pochettino at the Saints should the Argentine leave the club, with Tottenham Hotspur understood to be interested in his services, reports the Daily Star.

Garcia won 21 of his 53 games in charge of Brighton last season.
