Southampton though, are not the only club that is understood to be interested in signing the Serbia international who has scored two and supplied one assist in nine league appearances this season, with Premier League, rivals Everton also keen.
Also capable of playing on either flank, the 29-year-old Sassuolo player has proven himself a nightmare for defenders over the last couple of seasons and his ability to drift in between the lines and drag players with him to create space for teammates, makes him a highly shrewd operator.
For Southampton, he could prove to be particularly effective in this role and if not used as a striker, certainly has the ability to strike up a great relationship with summer capture Armstrong.
Everton meanwhile, are reportedly in the market for an attacking player and have been linked to a host of names, however, this will all likely depend on whether they can move James Rodriguez on, with new manager Rafa Benitez not keen on the player.
Djuricic is unlikely to cost the earth, with figures of £10 million being quoted, though this could of course rise, if the player excels for Sassuolo over the coming weeks. Also, with January not the best time to buy, due to players values increasing substantially, due to the short amount of time clubs have to business, this could hamstring any potential deal.
