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

Southampton have named Romain Perraud as their favorite choice for a new left-back
Southampton have been looking to bolster their full-back options for some time now 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 be Southampton’s second strike at Ligue 1 side Brest in the past 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 stars, providing three goals and seven assists from his left-back role.
And Perraud was Brest’s most used player, in 36 of their 38 league games.
The 23-year-old Brest defender could be available for somewhere in the region of £9 million
