Southampton are set to win the race for Chelsea youngster Tino Livramento.

The 18-year-old, who won the club's Academy Player of the Award last season, has asked for a transfer.

The Daily Mail says Saints have agreed a £5m deal for the highly rated defender.

Livramento will then sign a five-year contract with his new club.

It is the second time Southampton have raided their Premier League rivals this summer, having recently signed centre-back Dynel Simeu.

Brighton and AC Milan had also pursued Livramento.
