Yari Verschaeren made his first team debut with Anderlecht in November 2018 and has been a regular inclusion in their side since then.
The 18-year-old’s performances for club saw him make his international debut, for Belgium against Scotland earlier this week.
On September 12th, we carried a report from Calciomercato, who explained Southampton have set their sights on the midfielder.
Apart from that, there weren’t any additional details mentioned, now Anderlecht-Online now provide more. It’s claimed the Saints would ‘prepare an offer’ to sign the teenager in the winter market.
Southampton already signed Moussa Djenepo from Standard Liège in the summer and the report states Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side will once again raid the Jupiler Pro League in January as Verschaeren is a ‘priority’ target for the English side in the next window.
Anderlecht-Online adds the player’s value has increased to €15m after making debuts for both club and country in the past 10 months.
Anderlecht sporting director Michael Verschueren has already admitted he received offers over the phone for Verschaeren, but is yet to get a written proposal for him.
