Southampton are keen to complete the transfer of Feyenoord midfielder Lex Immers, reports Soccernews.

With Saints midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin picking up numerous amounts of interest, Southampton are planning a possible replacement, and Immers looks to be a potential target.

The 28-year-old has been in a great run of form this season in the Eredivisie, scoring eight goals.

The versatile midfielder can play on either side of the wing, deep-lying or also as an attacking midfielder.

The Saints are set to clash with Premier League rivals Newcastle United and FC Porto for the Netherlands international, according to reports.

Ronald Koeman’s Southampton side are currently seventh in the Barclays Premier League having accumulated 57 points, one point behind Tottenham Hotspur in sixth.
