Victor Wanyama and Sadio Mane are both tempted by the prospect of a move away from Southampton this summer, according to the Daily Mirror.
The former Kenyan has one season left on his contract and it's understood he is stalling on a new five-year deal to consider his options.
Likewise, Mane is in a similar position but with a year longer than the midfielder left on his current deal.

The Saints are keen to tie down the pair to new contracts after learning from previous mistakes of letting players enter the final 12 months of their deal, with Nathanial Clyne leaving for Liverpool last summer for a reduced fee.
Tottenham and Arsenal have both been previously linked with Wanyama and are reportedly still interested, whilst Mane has been a long-term target of Manchester United's.
The Saints currently sit seventh after what has been a fruitful season so far. However, for Wanyama and Mane, it hasn't always been plain sailing.
Following the club's 1-0 defeat to Norwich City in early January, manager Ronald Koeman criticised the pair for their respective attitudes and performances.
He told Sky Sports: "Of course [it was frustrating]. And that is by mistakes that we are doing by ourselves. The red card first, I think it is not good.
"When you know you have already a yellow, and you go for that tackle, in that position on the pitch, that is a bad decision from Wanyama.”
Prior to the clash, Mane arrived late to a team meeting the night before kick-off and was dropped as a result.
"And it starts with the problem about Sadio," he continued. "To change the team two hours before the game, because one player is coming late to the last meeting before the game, it is not that professional.
"It is not what we expect from the players of Southampton."
Wanyama and Sane have since improved and played a vital role in the club's recent strong run of form, increasing the likelihood of interest this summer.
