Jannik Vestergaard

The Daily Echo report that Southampton are interested in signing Vestergaard from Borussia Monchengladbach but that it is unsure whether he would potentially be on top of Marlon or alongside him, with the latter seeming more likely given they already have Maya Yoshida, Jan Bednarek, Stephens and Hoedt in their squad.

The 6ft 6in tall Dane showed his qualities on the ball and in the air in 32 Bundesliga appearances last term, winning 103 of the 161 aerial duels he faced as per WhoScored, and he would certainly look to be a better partner for someone like Stephens than Marlon would be if Saints are to push on again next season.
