Southampton are fearing another summer exodus with Nathaniel Clyne, Morgan Schneiderlin and Jay Rodriguez all refusing to sign new contracts at St. Mary's according to the Sunday People.
That could prompt a host of the Premier League's big boys to swoop for the trio when the next transfer window opens.
Saints lost a host of top stars including Dejan Lovren, Luke Shaw and Adam Lallana over the summer, but new boss Ronald Koeman has steadied the ship and they currently sit in third place in the Premier League.
However that progress could be undermined if they once more lose their best players in the summer. Tottenham and Arsenal have both been heavily linked with Schneiderlin, who tried to force a move at the start of the season, while Rodriguez is also reportedly a target for former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino, who is now in charge at White Hart Lane.
Liverpool have also been linked with the former Burnley forward. Both Clyne and Rodriguez are out of contract at the end of next season, while Schneiderlin has two years to run on his current deal. All three have been offered improved terms, but none have committed their future to the club as yet.
