Southampton are interested in signing Bologna’s Frederik Sorensen, according to the defender’s representative Michal Bolvig.

The 20-year-old has impressed for Bologna since joining the club from Serie A champions Juventus last summer, with the youngster scoring in a 2-1 defeat by Parma in December.

Sorensen’s performances have alerted a host of European clubs to the Under-21 Denmark international, and his representative revealed the Saints are among the interested parties.

“It is correct that Southampton are among the clubs who have contacted Bologna regarding an interest in Frederik,” Bolvig told Sporten.dk.

“He has now produced regularly on a high level in a good league and it is natural that there is interest for a young player like him.

“The Premier League is an exciting option for Frederik. But he is not in a hurry to interrupt the progress he is going through at Bologna right now.”

Sorensen admitted that he has been pleased with his impact at Bologna after starting nine Serie A games this term – but the right-back is refusing to get distracted by the speculation.

“I am now playing at the heart of the defence, where I am best and feel most comfortable,” he added.

“I value the praise I have had from my coach and the club’s sporting director. I am also happy for the responsibility I have got, although I am just 20 years old.

“It was not the same at Juventus.”
