Southampton have already lost several key players this summer…

Southampton’s summer exodus is set to continue next week, with five of the club’s star players set to confirm their moves away from St Mary’s Stadium.
The Saints have already seen Rickie Lambert and former club captain Adam Lallana move to Liverpool during the current transfer window, while Luke Shaw has joined Manchester United. Manager Mauricio Pochettino has also gone to Tottenham, leaving new boss Ronald Koeman to pick up the pieces.
And now, not only are the Reds circling again – as they prepare to add two further Saints players to their squad – but both Arsenal and Inter Milan are also closing in on signing players from the South Coast club.
5) Calum Chambers (Arsenal)
England Under-19 international Chambers looks set to seal his £16m move to Arsenal, and the deal is likely to be completed early next week. The young right-back was impressive for the Saints last season, and will provide competition for another of the Gunners new signings, Mathieu Debuchy. The Gunners have a history of taking young talent from Southampton – Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – and developing them into fantastic players, they will hope that Chambers completes a trio of former Saints stars.
