Aston Villa setting their sights on Matt Targett
Villa have been linked with a move for Southampton’s £10million-rated ace Matt Targett.
The 23-year-old left-back is among several players on Dean Smith’s radar as he rebuilds Villa’s squad ahead of their Premier League return.
Wales international Neil Taylor is currently the only recognised left-back on the club’s books.
Kortney Hause, who is poised to join in a £3million deal from Wolves, can also play in the position but Smith remains keen to strengthen.
Targett, who was also linked with Villa last summer and came close to joining Fulham in January, made 16 Premier League appearances for the Saints last season.
