Reports in the Daily Express claim that Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United are all interested in the Frenchman, who has become one of the most sought-after stars in the Premier League following several year’s of impressive performances at St Mary’s.

Schneiderlin publicly expressed his anger after being denied a move away from the club during the summer transfer window, despite the likes of Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Dejan Lovren and Luke Shaw all moving on.

However, the 25-year-old eventually stayed under new boss Ronald Koeman and has continued to churn out impressive performances, helping inspire the Saints to a surprising second in the table.

But speaking ahead of his side’s Monday night clash away to Aston Villa, Koeman revealed that it was unlikely that the playmaker will remain at the south-coast club past the end of the season, saying: said: “Keeping Morgan here will not be easy. We will have to see what happens.”
