English Premier League outfit Liverpool are reported to be heading to Southampton for another raid in this summer transfer window.

It can be safe to claim that Southampton has become a Feeder team for the Merseyside outfit as a number of Liverpool players have come through the Saints.

Virgil Van Dijk is the latest recruit while Adam Lallana, Sadio Mane and a number of names were also signed up from Liverpool.

The latest report claims that the Reds team are now in the search of a left full-back and are considering Southampton player Matt Targett.

From every indication, Liverpool will be parting ways with Spanish player Alberto Moreno and there will be a need for a replacement this summer.

Teamtalk reports that Matt Targett had impressed last season with just 13 Premier League games appearances.

It is claimed that manager Jurgen Klopp is not the only manager interested in the star player as Arsenal boss Unai Emery is also impressed with the performance of Matt Targett so far.

The 23-year-old is under contract until 2022 at St. Mary but there is no doubt that Liverpool will find it easy to land him because of the history they have had with the club in the past and the relationship that exists between them.
