Southampton “are among the clubs who contacted” Bologna defender Frederik Sorensen, confirmed his agent.
“Among the clubs who contacted Bologna for Frederik, there is also Southampton,” Michal Bolvig told Danish site Sporten.dk.
“He is playing consistently in a top League, so it is only normal there is going to be interest for him.
“The Premier League is an interesting option, but he is in no hurry to interrupt the journey he has taken with Bologna.”
The 20-year-old is co-owned between Bologna and Juventus.
Southampton have already done business with Bologna over the summer, signing Gaston Ramirez.
