Southampton are considering making a move for FC Twente’s Dusan Tadic as a possible replacement for Adam Lallana, who is being chased by Liverpool.
The Daily Mail reports how Tadic made 33 appearances for FC Twente last season, scoring an impressive 16 goals and providing 14 assists in Holland’s top division. He is also, like Lallana, naturally a left midfielder, but capable of playing in any attacking midfield position.
Everton and Liverpool have previously been linked with the Serbian international, but Southampton are thought to be the only club interested in making a firm offer.
FC Twente are likely to demand an offer in the region of £10 million for their star player.
Tadic would prove to be a brilliant piece of business, should he replicate his previous form in the Premier League, considering he will only cost a small amount of what the club are likely to receive for Lallana, who is being pursued by Liverpool in a £30 million move.
Gaston Ramirez has also been linked with a move away from the Saints, meaning there will be plenty of opportunities for 25-year-old Tadic.
Southampton are also looking for a player capable of replacing Rickie Lambert, who has agreed to join Liverpool in a £4million deal.
The club have expressed an interest in Livorno’s Paulinho, who scored 15 goals last season in Serie A. Livorno have made the striker available for £8 million.
