Southampton are looking into the possibility of signing Terence Kongolo and Sven van Beek from Feyenoord.

Southampton are interested in signing Terence Kongolo and Sven van Beek from Feyenoord, according to the Daily Mail.

Kongolo and Van Beek, both talented young centre-backs, have been identified as players that could become stars of the future and Southampton will attempt to bring them to St. Mary's in the summer.

Southampton have strong links in Holland, with Ronald Koeman in charge, and they have already shown that they know how to spot talent in the Eredivisie.

The Saints brought in Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle from their manager's homeland last summer, while Eljero Elia has already arrived this month.

The trio have made positive impressions on the South Coast and if Southampton are able to compete deals for Kongolo and Van Beek, they will be hoping they have a similar impact.

Kongolo is only 20-years-old, but he has already accumulated a vast amount of appearances for Feyenoord and even has two caps for the senior Dutch national side.

Van Beek, meanwhile, has slightly less club appearances, but he is still regarded as one of his country's finest prospects and has been capped up to U21 level.
