According to Le10 Sport, Southampton are interested in signing Brest left-back Romain Perraud.
Saints eye Perraud
Now, though, it seems they could be willing to wait until the summer to move for Perraud. The 23-year-old recently signed a deal with Brest until 2025, but that may not keep him at the club for the long term. Leeds United have also been mentioned as potential suitors.
As things stand, Southampton could lose one of their first-team regulars in the summer. Ryan Bertrand’s contract is set to run out at the end of the season, and there has been no indication that a new deal is close. His departure would leave Southampton with only Jake Vokins as a natural left-back.

Brest are currently 13th in Ligue 1, and Perraud has impressed from the left-side of the defence. So far this campaign, he has managed three goals and five assists (Transfermarkt), showing his attacking threat. Currently valued at £7.2m (Transfermarkt), he could well be an interesting option for Ralph Hasenhuttl as he looks to add to his squad in the future.
