According to a report from German newspaper Kicker, both Southampton and West Ham United are keen to land Werder Bremen midfielder Zlatko Junuzovic.

Junuzovic, 28, made his name in Austria with Austria Wien, before making a 2012 move to Germany with Werder Bremen, where he has been impressing ever since.

The playmaker, who will be a key player for Austria at this summer's European Championships, hit ten assists and four goals this past season for Werder - but appears to be on his way out.

After 15 goals in 115 games for Werder, Kicker report that Junuzovic has fallen out with manager Viktor Skrypnyk, because he has been forced to play out on the left hand side of midfield, when he would rather play centrally or as an attacking midfielder.

That's where Junuzovic will play for Austria this summer, and the disgruntled star could earn a summer move to England with two clubs believed to be keen.

Kicker suggest that Southampton and West Ham United - both heading to the Europa League next season - are interested in rescuing Junuzovic from his Bremen hell this summer.

A set piece master, Junuzovic could join international team-mates Christian Fuchs, Kevin Wimmer, Sebastian Prodl and Marko Arnautovic in the Premier League, and with the player unhappy, Bremen may prefer to simply cash in rather than keep a disgruntled player.
