But according to talkSPORT, Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger will reject any bids that come in for Tottenham transfer targets Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin .
Saints have already lost Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Dejan Lovren, Luke Shaw and Calum Chambers this summer but remaining duo Rodriguez and Schneiderlin are apparently not going anywhere.
Liverpool had been interested in former Burnley striker Rodriguez as they look to find extra potency in attack following the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.
Arsenal were reportedly interested in now senior French international Schneiderlin but former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring both to new club Tottenham Hotspur.
But the Saints chief has dismissed the ongoing rumours, insisting the duo are not for sale.
“It’s important for everybody to hear that we see Jay Rodriguez and Morgan Schneiderlin as players in the core that [new manager] Ronald Koeman would like to build around at the club,” said Krueger.
“They will be playing for us this season, they’re definitely not leaving Southampton. I don’t where these stories have come from.”
