Southampton will not sell Morgan Schneiderlin for any less than £27m, as Tottenham and Arsenal circle the midfielder, according to reports from The Guardian.

The France international is one of a number of Saints stars expected to leave St Mary’s Stadium this summer, after hinting that he’s ready to move on.

But with Luke Shaw, Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana having been sold, and Dejan Lovren set to follow, Ronald Koeman is ready to play hardball in a bid to keep the 24-year-old.

Schneiderlin is seen as one of the few vital players left at the club by the Dutchman and he’s desperate to ensure that some stability from last season’s impressive campaign is kept.

However they will sell for around £27m, with the midfielder’s World Cup status and importance seen as enough to ramp up his value.

Schneiderlin is also a home-grown player due to joining the Hampshire side when he was just 18.

Arsenal and Spurs are both highly interested, but they may be deterred by such an asking price.
