Southampton eye Luuk de Jong deal

De Jong linked with Premier League return

Southampton are reportedly considering a move for PSV Eindhoven striker Luuk de Jong.

Saints boss Ronald Koeman is thought to be eyeing up potential targets amidst intense speculation over Graziano Pelle's future at the club.

According to The Sun, Netherlands international Luuk de Jong is recognised as the ideal fit to take over the centre-forward role, should Pelle head to Manchester United in the next transfer window.

The 25-year-old had a dismal loan spell at Newcastle United in 2014, but has since then bounced back with the Peasants in the Eredivisie.

De Jong has scored 41 goals in 61 games for PSV Eindhoven till date.
