Eventually, Mario Lemina, known as the Southampton midfielder has turned out to be the object of strong interest of Arsenal and Manchester United.
This football player aged 25 is expected to leave St Mary’s following a stop-start period on the south coast.
In addition to Arsenal and Manchester, another club, Leicester have also demonstrated their interest in this player. However, none of the three members of the Premier League have demonstrated readiness to have Southampton’s valuation met.
At first, Saints shelled out $19,5m to buy the Gabon international from Juventus. They’re obliged to pay an extra amount of $3,5m.
The football club will be willing to get their funds back since they consider cashing in on Lemina – the player hasn’t been included in Southampton’s team for their pre-season training event in Austria.
As a matter of fact, in all plays for Saints, the ex-Marseille player has managed to make up to 52 appearances. However, only three of them have occurred this year.
