Fulham still pursuing deal to sign Targett

Fulham are still pursuing a deal to sign Matt Targett despite having a bid rejected by Southampton.

The Whites offered £5m for the left-back, who impressed after joining them on loan in January, playing a key role in them winning promotion via the play-offs.

Southampton want to keep him and turned the offer down, but Fulham still believe a deal can be done.

West London Sport revealed earlier this summer that Fulham were looking to sign five of the players who ended last season on loan at Craven Cottage and also revealed the Whites wanted Jean-Michael Seri, who has since arrived from Nice.

They are currently edging towards the signing of Aleksandar Mitrović from Newcastle and are also interested in signing Oliver Norwood from Brighton and Tomas Kalas and Lucas Piazon from Chelsea.

But Fulham are not looking to bring in Werder Bremen left-back Ludwig Augustinsson despite being linked with the Swede.
