AsĀ reported on Monday, Southampton boss Claude Puel is understood to be keeping a close eye on Genk centre-back Colley, who has been putting in some impressive performances for the Belgian side following a move to join them from Djurgardens in the summer.

Standing at 6ft. 3″, the 24-year-old certainly comes in at a similar height to Van Dijk, meaning he would provide that aerial presence at the back. As well as that, he offers experience of European football as he is currently featuring in the Europa League with his club.
