A figure of £8 million has been suggested for Feyenoord to let go of the Netherlands youth international.

Should the midfielder choose Saints he would be reunited with his former manager Ronald Koeman who was his coach until the end of last season.

Since making his debut Vilhena has played 96 games for Feyenoord scoring 10 goals.
