Norwich City are also keen on the Serbian international.
The Saints snapped up the talented Serbian in the January transfer window last season, a player that Ronald Koeman knew well from his days managing in Holland. Djuricic was a star for Heerenveen but has struggled for first team football since a big switch to Portugal with the capital club.
He failed to shine regularly for Southampton. He played just nine times, failing to score, and not setting the world alight.
Bournemouth would perhaps be considered the favourites. Local to Southampton, where Djuricic was last season, they are also perhaps best suited to pay the apparent package for the player.
Benfica reportedly want a year-long loan deal, with an agreement to sign the player for £7.2 million if it is a success.
Both Bournemouth and Norwich could do with a little extra gloss on their squads ahead of a Premier League assault. Now while it didn’t really happen for Djuricic at Southampton, he might still be worth a punt.
