Southampton are still battling to avoid relegation to the Championship in the final eight games of the Premier League season.
The Saints are currently two points above the drop zone, but have played a game less than Burnley in 17th – who are level on points with 18th-placed Cardiff.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has been impressive since taking over at St. Mary’s and does look set to finish the job and keep the club in the top-flight for another season.
However, in the summer there will need to be a number of signings to improve the current squad. Here are some Championship players Southampton could target…
Jansson could help to improve Southampton’s shaky defence, which has been an issue this season.
With Bertrand’s injury problems, Gibbs would provide far better cover than Matt Targett.
21 goals for the winger this season, Bowen would be a terrific signing for the Saints.
Adams was linked with Southampton in January and has scored 21 goals in the Championship for Birmingham so far this campaign.
The young forward has netted 16 goals for a struggling Swansea side this season. He could be what Southampton are missing up front.
Dack has impressed in midfield for Blackburn this season and could be ready to make the step up to Premier League football.
Lolley has consistently provided goals and assists for Nottingham Forest this season and would add much-needed depth in the wide areas for the Saints.
