Southampton have identified Romain Perraud as their preferred choice in their search for a new left-back.

Southampton have identified Romain Perraud as their preferred choice for a new left-back
Southampton have been keen to strengthen their full back options for some time and their need for a new left-back has increased with Ryan Bertrand leaving when his contract expires this month.
If they can land Perraud, it would represent Southampton’s second raid on Ligue 1 side Brest in the last year.
They signed midfielder Ibrahima Diallo from the French side in October.
Brest finished 17th in the French league but Perraud was one of their standout performers and chipped in with three goals and seven assists from his left-back role.
And Perraud was Brest’s most-used player, featuring in 36 of their 38 league games.
The 23 year-old Brest defender could be available for somewhere in the region of £9m
