High-flying English Premier League side Southampton are planning to sign Dutch-born Ghanaian winger Edwin Gyasi in January.
There are also reported interest from Championship side Derby County, according to reports from the English press.
But Southampton are keen to beat Derby County to the signing of Heracles Almelo winger Edwin Gyasi.
Ronald Koeman knows Gyasi from his time in charge of AZ and Feyenoord, and the Southampton manager recently sent scouts to Holland to watch the 23-year-old.
But Gyasi played under Steve McClaren at FC Twente in 2012, and the Derby boss wants to recruit the forward in their push for promotion to the Barclays Premier League.
Gyasi is known for his fast pace and is yet to be capped by Holland, though he also remains eligible for Ghana through his parents.
