Everton midfielder Tom Davies has emerged as a transfer target for Southampton, according to a report.
The England Under-21 international featured regularly under Carlo Ancelotti in the 2020-21 season with 30 appearances across all competitions, but he started just 17 of the Toffees' 38 Premier League games.
Davies's deal at Goodison Park does not expire until 2023, but his lack of consistent starts has supposedly alerted other Premier League clubs to the possibility of a summer swoop.
According to Football Insider, Southampton will make a move for the 22-year-old if Everton make it clear that they are willing to listen to offers, with the Saints prepared to try again after failing in their bid to prise Davies away from Merseyside last year.
Davies has scored six goals and set up seven more in 151 appearances for Everton since graduating from their academy, but he is not believed to have entered discussions with the club over a contract extension yet.
