Ronald Koeman has praised Graziano Pelle as "one of the best" strikers in the Premier League.
The Italy international has so far this season scored seven goals in all competions - nine if including his two with the Italian national team - and is on Saturday again expected to start for Southampton when they host Leicester.
Normally in my opinion a striker of (Manchester) City, Chelsea, United or Arsenal, they are creating more chances to score.
The chances to score are more often than strikers of Southampton or other teams but it his level, and his scoring goals is very good and I think he can beat his number of goals that he scored last year.
He's a very complete striker, he's not only physically strong, he knows what happens around him, has good technique, is tall but he's not slow, his co-ordination's very good.
He's every time more clever in the box, has a good header, is a good finisher, and is in my opinion one of the best.
The best example is how good he is as a player at this moment, that he is the No 9 of the national team of Italy, without any discussion. That's maybe the best way to explain how good Pelle is.
Southampton skipper Jose Fonte has extended his contract with the Premier League club until the summer of 2018.
The Portugal international centre back, 31, joined the Saints from Crystal Palace in 2010, and was handed the captaincy in August 2014.

Jay Rodriguez, Sadio Mane and Shane Long scored two goals apiece as Southampton coasted into the fourth round of the Capital One Cup with a 6-0 victory at MK Dons.
Rodriguez's goals were his first domestically in almost 18 months, having only recently returned from a lengthy lay-off with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.
He netted for the first time since his comeback against Danish outfit Midtjylland in the Europa League last month but his efforts on Wednesday night were his first strikes in English competition since a Premier League double against Newcastle on March 29, 2014.
The 26-year-old's brace, his second from the penalty spot, came either side of Mane's double while Long grabbed his two later in the second half - making it the heaviest defeat in MK Dons' short history.
Anthony Martial continued his dream start to life at Manchester United as he scored twice in their comeback victory at Southampton.Read the full story ›
