Martin Caceres is reportedly a target for Southampton and Sunderland
Martin Caceres is a free agent after being let go by Juventus last summer and as a result can be signed outside the transfer window.
The central defender was reportedly close to joining AC Milan last month, but despite completing a medical, the move broke down due to Caceres' wage demands.
And now the Uruguay international is said to be weighing up offers from two Premier League clubs, thought to be Southampton and Sunderland.
Martin Caceres is reportedly on his way to the UK
Italian website GianlucaDiMarzio claims the 29-year-old will travel to the UK today as he prepares to meet with both clubs.
The report says Southampton have been alerted to Caceres after failing to agree a deal for France international Philippe Mexes.
And Sunderland are also in the race for the centre-back as they look to bolster their squad for a relegation scrap.

Who has your club signed in the January transfer window?
Caceres is said to have turned down a £4,000-a-week basic contract at Milan with a pay-per-play bonus of £21,000 a game.
Both Southampton and Sunderland are likely to be able to beat this contract given the financial clout of the Premier League.
Caceres is an experienced defender and made 110 appearances for Juve before being released by the club, scoring seven goals.
