Southampton have slapped a £5 million price-tag on wonderkid Adam Lallana.
Tottenham had hoped to nick Lallana, 20, for £2m in a January swoop. He lives in St Albans, Hertfordshire, but slipped through Spurs' scouting net.
Lallana has become a regular at St Mary's where he only recently signed a new three-year deal.
The attacking midfielder needed an operation to cure an irregular heartbeat in his teens.
