Koni De Winter

According to Belgian news outlet Het Belang van Limburg (via Sports Witness), Saints, Brighton and Club Brugge are all tracking the progress of Juventus youngster Koni De Winter.

The 19-year-old is a bright prospect after coming through the later years of Juve’s youth system following a 2018 transfer to Zulte Waregem but may be searching for a club where he can break through into first-team football.

De Winter appeared on the bench for Juve’s senior team last season but is yet to make his first appearance despite performing well at Under-23s level.

International caps for Belgium at all levels from Under-15s to Under-19s currently sees him as a promising player for a country that has a host of top quality talents at its disposal.

Saints have been able to attract a similar type of talent already this summer after signing Tino Livramento from Chelsea and offering him a direct path to regular Premier League appearances.
