Southampton’s midfield general Morgan Schneiderlin was a top target for Arsenal and Tottenham this past summer, and both are thought to still be keen on bringing him to North London.
The Frenchman is still hoping to move away from the South coast club, with Champions League football a high priority.
Former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino was confident that the £25m rated man would follow him to White Hart Lane, but now fears that Arsenal and their ability to offer Champions League football are in the driving seat.
The Gunners have long been lacking a powerful defensive midfielder, and Arsene Wenger may view the 25-year-old as the missing link in his side.
Southampton are unlikely to want to sell, but if a large enough bid is tabled then they may find it difficult to turn down.
