Oliver Bierhoff is said to have had talks on Thursday
Germany striker Oliver Bierhoff could be set for a shock move to Southampton.

The AC Milan star is said to be having talks with the Premiership side, according to Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport.

The newspaper said Bierhoff met a Southampton representative on Thursday evening.

The 33-year-old 's chances at Milan look limited since the arrival of strikers Filippo Inzaghi and Javi Moreno.

Future plans

He has not been included in the Milan squad which will face Turkey's Besiktas in a friendly in Istanbul on Saturday.

After an active summer in the transfer market Milan are looking to part with some of the players who do not feature in Turkish coach Fatih Terim's plans.

Bierhoff has also recently been linked with French first division Olympique Marseille.
