Southampton have pleaded with Adam Lallana to stay put and warned the likes of Liverpool they won't sell anyone on the cheap.
Saints' executive director Les Reed claims they deserve credit for the player Lallana has become since they poached him from Bournemouth and that he should keep that in mind.
The England midfielder is wanted by Reds boss Brendan Rodgers and is keen to move to Anfield but negotiations have stalled because, reportedly, Southampton are demanding a £30million transfer fee.
The Saints, who appointed Ronald Koeman as their new manager this week, have told their captain he should not be in such a rush to leave.
Reed said: "Lallana's been here long enough, we've brought him to this level and we feel that perhaps he should give it a little bit longer.
"Anybody seriously considering coming for our players is going to have to think very significantly about the size of the fee," he added on BBC South Today.
"If we do take money it will be because it's the right amount and it enables us to improve the team and move forward."
