SAINTS are reportedly looking to add a second Tino from Chelsea in the space of a few months.

Having snapped up Livramento in the summer, football.london and Goal claim 20-year-old Anjorin is next on their list.

Anjorin spent the first half of the season playing on loan at Lokomotiv Moscow, but it is said he will not return to Russia after their winter break following Ralf Rangnick's departure as the club's manager of sports and development.

Rangnick has since taken up the role of interim manager at Manchester United.

Chelsea are said to favour Anjorin heading out on loan to a Championship club, but the report says Saints are keen to tie up a permanent deal for the attacking midfielder before Monday's transfer deadline.

Anjorin, born on the south coast in Poole, briefly trained with Saints as a schoolboy, before eventually signing for Chelsea's academy.

The England under-20 international penned a fresh five-year deal with the Blues in June 2020 and has made five senior appearances for the club.
