Sunderland have launched a move for Netherlands striker Jeremain Lens, according to ESPN.

27-year-old Lens has been highly impressing over the years and gained a lucrative move to Dynamo Kiev in 2013, going on to help them win two Ukrainian Cups and one League title.

His impressive form has attracted the attentions of a number of Premier League and Dutch sides and it is now being reported that former Netherlands boss Dick Advocaat has made significant moves to sign the striker.

Lens only managed to score five times in 16 games last season for Kiev, but Advocaat believes he will thrive in English football.

The Daily Mail claims that the North East side want to make several changes to their squad this summer, starting with a change in attack.
