Southampton face cashing in on young striker Adam Lallana next month, it has been revealed.

The Sun says Saints will sell their top players next month in a desperate bid to avoid administration - and a 10-point penalty.

Fears are mounting for the South Coast club, which is now £27.5million in debt and has barely any working capital to continue day-to-day operations.

Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool are chasing Lallana, 20, who is rated at around £2 million.
