Gonzalez, 29, could become the latest signing at the St Mary’s as the Saints manager Ronald Koeman is eying an £8m bid for the Uruguayan international, who featured in all four matches at the 2014 World Cup tournament.
Despite receiving around to £100million from off-loading their star players this summer, Koeman has only spent £47million and is still looking to add a few more players to his ranks.
The Mirror quotes Koeman as saying, “We are still looking to sign one or two more players including a winger.”
The Lazio midfielder has made 109 appearances in all competition last season, who is usually played as a central or right midfielder with his versatility.
Gonzalez could be used as a replacement for Calum Chambers, who left the club for Arsenal.
