Incoming Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is eyeing Celtic defender Virgil van Dijk.

The Mirror says Koeman is lining up Van Dijk for his first signing as Southampton manager.

The former Ajax and Feyenoord boss is set to be appointed by Saints this week after returning from his holiday in Turkey.

The Dutch legend is keen to land £8million-rated compatriot Van Dijk with doubts over the futures of current St Mary's centre-back pairing Dejan Lovren and Jose Fonte.
