Southampton are considering offering Shane Long a new improved contract to deter Liverpool and Spurs making a bid for the Irish international, says the Daily Mirror.
Long struck 10 times for the Saints last season, form which is believed to have put him on the wanted list of Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino.
The Spurs boss was in Dublin on Friday to see Long score for the Republic against the Netherlands, but Southampton are desperate to keep hold of the 29-year-old. .
Long still has two years left on his current deal and could be set for a significant pay rise on the south coast by agreeing new terms.
