Southampton are reportedly keen on a move for experienced Werder Bremen midfielder Zlatko Junuzovic.

According to a report from the Daily Star, the Saints are set to battle Huddersfield Town for the Austrian international’s signature, as he weighs up his options this summer.

At the age of 29, Junuzovic has just one year remaining on his current deal with the Bundesliga outfit, and may be keen to seek pastures new should an opportunity arise.

Mauricio Pellegrino is claimed to be a big fan of the midfielder, and is tempted by a move, according to the Daily Star.

Although a move for Junuzovic would not be in the vein of an archetypal Southampton signing, he would provide a different dimension to the club’s midfield options.

The experienced Austrian is claimed to be keen on securing a move to the Premier League in the near future, and Saints could be keen to help him realise this aim.

Junuzovic was linked with a move to the south coast last summer.
