- Lemina flattered by Arsenal and Watford links
While Arsenal have been linked with Juventus midfielder, Lemina, their reported interest cooled recently. However, the 23-year-old has apparently gotten wind of it and is pretty flattered.
“I am flattered by the interest of Arsenal and Watford. I am playing for a big club now but I am happy about the interest of other clubs,” he told French outlet, Foot Mercato [via Evening Standard].
“I do not have a preference for any league. My future depends on who really wants me.”
Lemina, who signed for the Old Lady from Marseille in 2015, still has three years left on his current deal with Juventus, and they claim that they have no intention of listening to offers for the Gabon international from Arsenal or anyone else.
It was previously reported that he was being viewed as out-of-favour Francis Coquelin’s replacement but it seems that Juve aren’t willing to see, and Arsenal aren’t really that interested.
Last season, Lemina featured 29 times over all competitions, but only played 899 minutes in Serie A, averaging just 47.3 minutes per appearance.
Valencia and Lyon have also been linked.
