Southampton refuse to be bullied selling Arsenal target Oxlade-Chamberlain on cheap
But Saints won't let him leave without the Gunners stumping up big money.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, 17, is rated at around £10m.
But any thoughts Arsenal have of paying £5m up front and the rest in instalments will be rejected by the League One club.
A source said: "Southampton do not have to sell players for the sake of it and would not be interested in a down-payment deal."
