Mane has been a revelation with Saints, and boss Ronald Koeman will be determined to keep hold of the 24-year-old, who was signed from Salzburg for £11.25million.

However a bid of around £17million could be too good to turn down and the Gunners will raise the cash by selling Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The 22-year-old has been out of action since suffering a serious knee injury back in February, but he should be fit for pre-season, and there is a good chance he will be at another club by then.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is planning changes to his squad this summer and is willing to let Oxlade-Chamberlain go, so he can keep Theo Walcott.

Southampton have been linked with a move to re-sign Oxlade-Chamberlain, but reports claim that Premier League champions Leicester are leading the race for his signature.

Wenger will want £15million for the winger so he can put it towards making a move for Mane.
