Mario Lemina has confirmed he has received an offer from Arsenal as he looks to leave Juventus.
- Lemina wants to leave Juventus for more playing time
- He has offers from Arsenal and Watford
- He’ll speak with manager Allegri about his future
Gazzetta dello Sport report that Mario Lemina has two offers from English clubs, believed to be Arsenal and Watford.
The midfielder is looking for more playing time and could leave Juventus this summer if he doesn’t receive assurances from manager Massimiliano Allegri.
“On a personal level, it was a difficult season,” he said. “I wanted to play more. I’m young, so I need to play more to keep improving.”
“[Arsenal and Watford] Two interesting projects, but at the moment I’m only thinking of Juve. I want to talk with them and understand what they want from me. There’s no hurry.”
Lemina started just eight games in Serie A last season as he found himself behind the likes of Sami Khedira, Claudio Marchisio and Miralem Pjanic in the pecking order.
Arsenal could be looking at a central midfielder due to the long-term injury to Santi Cazorla and the uncertain futures of Jack Wilshere, Mohamed Elneny and Francis Coquelin.
Lemina is a dynamic midfield player who could be a suitable partner for Granit Xhaka in Arsenal’s engine room.
