New Southampton goalkeeper Angus Gunn is not afraid to aim high.

The highly-rated stopper has signed a five-year deal at St Mary’s, and is determined to challenge for a Premier League starting berth immediately.

The 22-year-old believes success with Saints will help realise his “ultimate dream” of representing England, having earned 11 caps for the Under-21s, for whom he remains eligible.

“I’m coming in and I’m really excited,” Gunn said. “I want to push for the number one spot straightaway.

“I’ve come to play Premier League football and I’ll be doing everything in my power in training to get that.

“Obviously, in the future, anything can happen, and I’m really positive about what the club holds.”

Gunn’s international ambitions were stirred by spending a week with the squad before they departed for Russia, such is the high esteem he is held by Gareth Southgate and co.

“I had a great week before the guys went to the World Cup, training with the team, which was a big boost for me,” he added.

“The squad is doing amazingly at the moment, so hopefully they can bring it home.

“For me, the ultimate dream would be to play for England. First, I need to sort my club career out, get playing and hopefully that will come in the future.”
