Juventus midfielder, Mario Lemina, is reportedly set to be offered to Arsenal.
- Agent to meet with Arsenal in ‘coming days’ over sale of Juventus midfielder
- Mario Lemina: The £17.6m midfielder wanted by Arsenal
- Midfielder to be ‘offered’ to Gunners
Lemina’s agent is not only allegedly set to meet with Arsenal in the ‘coming days’ over a move for his client, but the Juventus midfielder is reportedly going to be offered to the Gunners.
The 23-year-old is apparently keen to move to Arsenal, despite Watford’s interest and supposed £17m bid.
The rumour has originated from Italian journalist, Emanuele Giulianelli, who isn’t the most reliable when it comes to Arsenal transfers, and while we reported on the meeting between Lemina’s agent and the Gunners, which is apparently set to take place in the ‘coming days’, the claim that the Gabon international will be ‘offered’ to Arsene Wenger is new.
Lemina, who recently said that he was ‘flattered’ by the attention from Arsenal and the Hornets, made 29 appearances for Juve last season, scoring and assisting once.
“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.”
He has three years left on his current deal.
