Southampton boss George Burley is hoping to raid old club Hearts for Rudi Skacel and Andy Webster.
Burley is a big admirer of the duo and is keen to be reunited with them at St Mary's.
Skacel, who enjoyed a fine season last term, is looking to leave Tynecastle and has set his sights on a move to England.
Webster's future has been up in the air since April after he was placed on the transfer list for failing to sign a new deal.
Southampton are thought to have opened talks with Hearts for the pair, with the Scottish side ready to let the unsettled pair move on.
