Reports in Belgium are suggesting that Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers have their eyes on one of the members of the Belgium side that recently played at this summer’s European Championships in France.

He also happens to be the younger brother of a current Premier League star.

Jordan Lukaku is currently a left-back for the Belgian national team and Belgian outfit KV Oostende – but is expected to leave the club this summer. He is also the brother of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.

Voetbal Krankt reports Het Nieuwsblad as highlighting interest in the younger Lukaku brother from both Southampton and Championship side Wolves.

Southampton’s interest would come as a surprise, considering they already have Ryan Bertrand and Matt Targett available to them in the position.

Wolves would love to have Lukaku and are said to have a sizeable transfer budget this summer. However, Lukaku would seem unlikely to want to play in the Championship next season – even if Wolves could afford him.

The same report suggests that a move to Lazio seems the more likely scenario, with the defender keen on a move to Rome.

But fans of Southampton and Wolves will no doubt be keeping tabs on this rumour.
