And the Romania starlet continued to impress at Euro 2016, despite only making his full international debut in March.

From two group stage outings, Stanciu averaged an impressive 2.5 shots, 3.5 successful dribbles and three created chances per match.

According to DigiSport, the youngster has emerged as a transfer target for Southampton, following Saido Mane’s £34million departure to Liverpool.

And it’s believed Bucuresti rate their promising youngster at around £5.1million – a fee well within the Saints’ financial reach.

Significant changes to Southampton’s squad are expected this summer, especially following the appointment of former Nice manager Claude Puel.

In addition to Mane, star midfielder Victor Wanyama has also left for Tottenham Hotspur.
