The Reds' director of football strategy Damien Comolli was in the stands at St Mary's on Tuesday afternoon to watch the son of former England international Mark Chamberlain find the net in a 4-1 win over Huddersfield in npower League One.
But Saints boss Nigel Adkins insists he will not welcome any bids for the highly-rated 17-year-old when the January transfer window opens.
"I didn't know he (Comolli) was here," said Adkins.
"But we will not start talking about all our players having a price, or putting a price on players' heads, we want to keep this squad together.
"We are not looking to let Alex go."
