Southampton are interested in securing the services of Arsenal star Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on transfer deadline day.
This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the Saints are looking at the possibility of landing the England international on loan.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, of course, started his career at St Mary's but completed a move to north London back in 2011.

Despite making almost 100 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, the 22-year-old has failed to establish himself as a key man for the club this season.
In fact, he has only completed 90 minutes on two occasions in England's elite division this season.
It's far from certain, however, as to whether the Gunners would be prepared to offload Oxlade-Chamberlain for the short-term.
One thing is for sure, with the close of the transfer window very much on the horizon, Southampton must move quickly.
A move this late in the transfer window would come as a major surprise, but you wouldn't blame the versatile Arsenal midfielder for thinking about it.
Ultimately, Oxlade-Chamberlain needs game time as he goes in search of securing a place in Roy Hodgson's England squad for Euro 2016.
But with Arsenal still challenging for three major trophies, surely Oxlade-Chamberlain will be able to stamp his mark on the side over the coming weeks and months.
Should Oxlade-Chamberlain return to Southampton on loan? Have your say below!
