Fulham have revived their interest in Southampton's Matt Targett, Sky Sports News understands.
The 23-year-old left-back was instrumental on loan at the Whites when they were promoted to the Premier League in 2018 - and they wanted to sign him permanently last summer.
Fulham had an initial £5m bid rejected but Targett stayed at St Mary's to make 16 Premier League appearances and five more in the cups.
Southampton still see a future for Targett at their club and it is understood only a significant offer would convince them to enter discussions.
Targett - a product of Southamtpon's academy - is set to compete with Ryan Bertrand for the left-back position again next season.
The Eastleigh-born defender has made a total of 63 senior appearances for the Saints, scoring once and setting up a further six goals.
He joinedFulham on loan in January 2018 and impressed across 21 appearances, scoring once and providing two assists, as Slavisa Jokanovic's side went up via the Championship play-offs.
