Southampton are ready to join Leicester in the chase to sign FC Midtjylland star Pione Sisto in the summer, according to reports.
The 21-year-old Danish winger has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League ahead of next season, with the Foxes sending scouts to keep tabs on his progress on several occasions.
Sisto was recently given huge coverage in England when he scored in both legs of Midtjylland’s Europa League tie against Manchester United.
As a result it has led to speculation linking him with moves to other top European clubs such as German side Borussia Dortmund and Spanish outfit Valencia.
Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is now being linked with a swoop for Sisto due to the uncertainty over the future of current forward Sadio Mane at St Mary’s.
The Dutch tactician will have noted the player’s qualities when his side faced Midtjylland in the Europa League’s early rounds at the start of the current season.
Sisto and Midtjylland sports director Claus Steinlein both claimed this week that they have not heard anything from supposed interested parties but it seems Â£12million would be enough to secure his signature.
