Southampton boss is keen on to strengthen midfield options since Morgan Schneiderlin left the team and joined Manchester United in the summer.
According to the latest reports Ronald Koeman wants to be reunited with Feyenoord midfield ace Tonny Vilhena, who has been on the Saints radar all summer long but they failed to lure him at St Mary’s.
Koeman has confirmed that he is keen on to sign U-21 Netherlands international starlet who has been tipped to be one of the best talents in Europe.
“He is an interesting player, very young, but already experienced, with a lot of drive and power in his game,” Koeman told Voetbal International.
“You have to judge him in his age category and then Tonny is very advanced. When I looked at the youth players at Southampton, there were few left-sided players with his speed. Unfortunately, it did not work out.”
The 20-year old midfielder has already netted three times and created six chances for his teammates and could be an ideal addition to Koeman’s squad.
