Southampton fans want to offload defender Matt Targett amid reported Fulham interest

Southampton defender Matt Targett is reportedly on the radar of Fulham this summer – and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter have suggested he might be a good idea to show him the exit doors at St Mary’s.

According to Sky Sports, Fulham want to to try take him to Craven Cottage as they prepare for a season back in the Championship next year.

The left-back precisely had a spell on loan with the London club and it’s understood they wanted to sign him permanently last summer.

But the report details a £5million bid was turned down by Southampton for the full-back and it would take a “significant offer” in this window to prize him away.

Targett is a product of the Southampton academy and has made 63 senior appearances since breaking through the ranks.

He played 21 times for the first team in the most recent season, scoring one goal and supplying three assists.

A selection of Southampton supporters on social media don’t believe that Targett has a long-term future at the club and that it may make sense to accept any approach from Fulham.

He’ an all-action left-back that can be a real threat going forward, but he’s not quite featured regularly in the plans of manager Ralph Hasenhuttl and an exit for all parties may make sense.

Here are some Southampton fans on the Targett speculation:
