The 17-year-old has scored four goals in 16 matches in League One so far this season and his performances have seem him compared to one of the Saints' recent academy products, Arsenal’s Theo Walcott.
Oxlade-Chamberlain made his debut at Southampton earlier this year and was called for first-team appearance in March. He is the Saint’s second youngest ever player, after Walcott, a fact that Goal.com exclusively revealed had brought him to the attention of Arsenal and Liverpool.
Boss Adkins admits it was always obvious top teams would scout him, but is confident that he will not say goodbye to St Mary’s.
“There have not been any bids and nor would they be welcome," Adkins said, according to The People.
"He's part of the club's future. We have a lot of talented players and I can see why Premier League clubs might come knocking.
"But we are in a sound financial position and do not need to sell anyone."
