Austin is the club's leading scorer this season with eight goals, despite missing three months of the season due to a hamstring tear.
However, five of those goals came in the seven games preceding his injury, while he struck 18 in the 2014/15 Premier League season while at QPR, proving Austin is capable of hitting good form in the Premier League.
Having only made his return from injury last weekend, it's not yet clear to see whether Austin can continue that run of form between now and the end of the season.
If he does, the 28-year-old will not be short of suitors if the Saints go down. He is clearly respected within the game as two of his former managers are said to be chasing him.
Meanwhile, Leicester manager Claude Puel worked with the striker during his spell as Southampton manager last season. The fact that both managers are keen to work with the striker again shows his good pedigree within football.
