Mario Lemina hands Manchester United and Arsenal transfer boost

Manchester United and Arsenal target Mario Lemina wants to stay in England and move to a ‘big club’. 

The Southampton midfielder has made clear his intention to leave St Mary’s having signed for £18million from Juventus two years ago.  

‘The best thing for me would be to stay here (England), but I don’t close the door on any club, or any country,’ he told France Football.

‘I aspire to play in the very biggest clubs, now we will see what is offered to me.

‘I made a good impression in England, I received good feedback at a certain point, so I hope that clubs won’t have a short memory.’

Lemina was not included in the Southampton squad for their pre-season training camp in Austria. 

Saints have received interest in the 25-year-old from United, Arsenal, and Leicester so far and want to recoup what they paid for him in 2017.

The Gabon international was by no means a star performer for Southampton last season despite showing flashes of brilliance. 

He started 18 Premier League games in the Premier League, scoring once and providing one assist, although he did suffer injury problems. 

In spite of those numbers, Lemina said: ‘I am truly looking to find consistency again, to become an important player in a team again with big objectives.

‘I quite simply told myself that I would do two years at Southampton, and then go to another level. I had an agreement with the sporting director.

‘Since last year, I made it clear: I want to leave and go elsewhere this summer.’
