Akpom has netted 13 times in 19 Sky Bet Championship appearances for the Teesiders this season.
The Daily Mail is now reporting that the three Premier League clubs are considering a move for the forward in the current winter transfer window.
Southampton have scored just 15 goals in 17 Premier League matches so far, with Che Adams the club’s top scorer with four.
Everton and Crystal Palace are also keen to add firepower to their attack.
Akpom ‘s contract with Boro will expire in the summer but Michael Carrick’s side have an option to extend his stay by a further 12 months.
