Indonesian Super League club Sriwijaya FC look set to add another big-name player to their ranks following their pursuit of former Brazil international Adriano.

Now, former Netherlands international Denny Landzaat has been linked with an imminent move to the Palemband side.

According to PT Sriwijaya secretary Faisyal Mursyid, Landzaat's agent stated that his client wants to join Sriwijaya FC.

"Sriwijaya FC has been known in Europe, so it's natural if we receive lots of proposals for the player," he said exclusively to Goal Indonesia.

Sriwijaya's Technical Director Hendri Zainuddin also confirmed Landzaat's interest to join his team, saying: "Yes, it's true there is a former Netherlands national team player who wants to join Sriwijaya FC."

"It is a good sign, it means Sriwijaya FC are a big-name club and are known by all players around the world.

"But not every player will join Sriwijaya FC, because we will sign players that team needs. Not just because they are big names, but also if they fit the team."

Of Dutch-Indonesian descent, Landzaat turned out for the Dutch from 2001 to 2008, featuring in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

The midfielder had playing stints with English side Wigan Athletic and was last at FC Twente in the Dutch league.
