Southampton and West Ham United are interested in Sassuolo midfielder Filip Duricic this summer.
Gianluca Di Marzio reports that the Italian club has already received bids for the 29-year-old.
The Serbian offensive midfielder’s current deal with the Italian side expires in a year.
Duricic previously played on loan for Saints in the Premier League in 2016, but is eager to extend his time in Italy beyond this summer.
The Sassuolo forward scored five goals and assisted on four others in Serie A last season, and he might prove to be an asset for Southampton or West Ham.
Both clubs could need some offensive depth, and they will be keen to pull the Serbian away from Italy for a fair fee.
Duricic is set to become a free agent next summer, and Sassuolo are pressed to offload him immediately. They will not want to lose him next year on a free transfer.
It will be fascinating to observe how the Serbian scenario evolves in the next weeks.
He is a dynamic midfielder capable of operating in wide areas as well. He might be a valuable addition to any Premier League team next season.
