Southampton boss Ronald Koeman appears resigned to losing Morgan Schneiderlin this summer and is rumoured to have already found his replacement.
The Frenchman is wanted by a host of clubs including Arsenal and Tottenham and Koeman is said to have prepared a £5m bid for Legia Warsaw ace Ondrej Duda in case the midfielder gets his way.
Slovenia international Duda has enjoyed a solid season in the Polish top flight, contributing eight goals from 31 appearances for the Wojskowi.
Ironically, Arsenal and Spurs have also been linked with the 20-year-old but the fact that both clubs have placed Schneiderlin higher on their list of priorities means Koeman should have a clear run at the midfielder.
A creative influence in the middle of the park, Duda has drawn comparisons with some top-rated South American talent in recent months, earning him nicknames like Dudinho and Ondrej Di Maria.
Check out Duda doing his thing for Legia:
Saints are currently sitting in seventh place in the Premier League table, just four points behind Liverpool and potential European qualification.
Next up for the St Mary’s club is a trip to face in-form but relegation-threatened Leicester.
