Southampton, West Ham keen on Lille duo

Premier League sides Southampton and West Ham are keeping close tabs on Lille stars Simon Kjaer and Idrissa Gueye, according to L’Equipe.

The two players are widely expected to leave les Dogues this summer, and the latest reports suggest that the Ligue 1 side value them at €10 million each.

Simon Kjaer has been on the radar of Turkish giants Galatasaray, Fenerbahce and Besiktas, but with Southampton and West Ham also expressing interest, the Dane would prefer to move to English Premier League.

His teammate Idrissa Gueye recently confirmed his plans to leave Lille for greener pastures, also citing England as his preferred destination.

The ball is now in the court of the Premier League teams, who need to try and reach an agreement with les Dogues, and they have plenty of time to do so.

While Simon Kjaer started 31 league matches last term, scoring one goal, Idrissa Gueye netted 4 times in 32 Ligue 1 appearances.
