Reports are out claiming that Southampton remain locked in talks with Victor Wanyama over a new contract.
At the end of this season the Kenyan midfielder will have just a year left on the deal he penned when joining from Celtic for £12.5m in 2013.
“I didn’t talk to Victor about his contract,” said Saints boss Ronald Koeman.
“What I know is that the club, Les Reed, is talking to Victor and talking to his agent about his future in the club and about his contract.
“I don’t know what the state is of that talks.
“We like to keep Victor in the club and that’s why Les Reed is talking to the player and to his agent.”
Arsenal are said to be ready to swoop for the Kenyan international star.
