Southampton are willing to listen to offers for both Charlie Austin and Matt Targett this summer, according to Football Insider.
They claim that Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is happy to let up to eight senior players leave the club this summer, with Austin and Targett the two players listed in the recent report.
Hasenhuttl is preparing for his first full season in charge at St Mary’s, with numerous ingoings and outgoings expected on the south coast ahead of the new campaign.
Austin joined the club from Queens Park Rangers in 2016, while Targett has been on the books with the Saints from the age of eight.
Both featured under Hasenhuttl last season, however, the pair look set to depart this summer after falling out of favour under the Austrian.
By selling up to eight first-team players, the Saints would then look to use the funds received to bring in Hasenhuttl’s top targets, with a wide man and a central defender thought to be two areas the 51-year-old is keen on strengthening in.
Four more possible first-team departures this summer
Out of favour striker Carrillo is thought to be attracting interest from Mexico, Spain and Italy this summer and looks destined to end his disappointing Saints career this summer.
Stephens endured an inconsistent campaign last season and could be another moved on this summer. Teams in the Championship could be interested in the defender.
Elyounoussi failed to provide a single goal or assist last season after signing for £16m last summer. The winger may well be sold this summer to fund a move for a wide replacement.
Forster looks set to be allowed to leave the club this summer. However, his high wages may well be an issue in trying to offload the Englishman.
