Southampton are reportedly interested in signing Lech Poznan centre-back Jan Bednarek.
The 21-year-old, who will represent hosts Poland at the European Under-21 Championships this summer, played 27 times for Lech during the 2016-17 campaign.
According to the Daily Echo, Southampton are on the verge of submitting a £5m offer for Bednarek, although the Saints will face competition from a number of German clubs, including Hannover.
The defender, who came through the youth system at his Polish club, represented Gornik Leczna on loan during the 2015-16 campaign before stepping into the Poznan first team last term.
Bednarek will feature against England's Under-21 side during the European Championships, which start later this week.
