Liverpool and Tottenham are eyeing both Lallana and Shaw who are set to quit St Mary’s this summer after Moyes lined up a double bid before his sacking last week.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is determined to strengthen his squad after qualifying for the lucrative Champions League next season. Rodgers is looking more than likely to also be trying to defend a Premier League trophy and will be given money to spend on good young players.

Tottenham are keen on them after missing out on the Champions League after the vast majority of the signings they made after the sale of Gareth Bale last summer failed to hit expected heights.

Lallana and Shaw have both made their England bows this season and have been in exceptional form for Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino.
