Southampton are targeting the signings of Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson and Leeds defender Pontus Jansson this summer, this is according to Sky Sports
Both are under contract to their respective clubs until June 2020, but the Saints believe they can lure them to St Mary’s if the pair are faced with the prospect of Championship football next season.
Sigurdsson, 27, is fighting a relegation battle with the Swans, while Sweden international Jansson expects to secure a play-off place with Leeds.
Southampton have been tracking Sigurdsson, whose family is settled in Swansea, for two years and made an attempt to sign him in 2016.
The South Coast club are also resigned to losing centre-back Virgil van Dijk when he recovers from an ankle injury and see Jansson as a replacement.
