Southampton to demand £27m for star midfielder
Southampton have placed a huge £27m asking price on the head of star midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin – according to reports in the Guardian.
The Saints have already lost Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Luke Shaw this summer, while both Dejan Lovren and Calum Chambers are thought to be closing in on moves to Liverpool and Arsenal respectively.
And, in an attempt to deter further interest in 24-year-old French international Schneiderlin, new St Mary’s boss Ronald Koeman has massively inflated his asking price. Both Tottenham and Arsenal have been long-term admirers of the player, but may now need to up their bid substantially in order to convince the South Coast club to sell.
