RONALD Koeman is being linked with a move for a striker who was once a smash hit playing for him in Holland.

Manchester City’s 22-year-old Swede John Guidetti is currently on a season long loan with Glasgow Celtic, and has scored 11 times in 18 league and cup appearances.

But though Celtic have agreed a £2m fee with City to make the move permanent, Guidetti has yet to show any signs of committing himself long term.

And that has sparked speculation that Koeman could sign the player for a second time.

Guidetti was only 19 when Koeman took him to Feyenoord on a season long loan at the start of the 2011/12 season.

Despite only having had short loan spells with Swedish club Br'pojkarna and Burnley, Koeman had obviously seen something in Guidetti.

The player became a huge hit in Holland, smashing 20 league goals in only 23 Dutch Erevidisie appearances.

Guidetti struck two hat-tricks, including one in a 4-2 win over Koeman’s former club Ajax, who ended the season six points clear of Koeman and co as champions.

Koeman is not planning to panic buy in the current transfer window, and has so far brought in only Eljero Elia on loan.

But the Saints boss could be tempted to add to his striking options if the right player became available at a good price.

Koeman only has Graziano Pelle and Shane Long as forwards who could play through the middle, with the former having started every Premier League game so far.
