Leicester keen on battling Juventus, Arsenal for midfield talent as UCL spot is confirmed

According to reports in France, Leicester City are keen to battle the likes of Juventus and Arsenal to sign Marseille midfielder Mario Lemina.

The 22-year-old has endured a testing season on loan at Juve, where he hasn’t truly asserted himself as a starter. Nonetheless, he remains one of the most highly rated young central midfielders in the European game, and has attracted considerable attention in recent months.

According to Le 10 Sport, a whole swathe of European heavyweights—including Napoli, Valencia, Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund—are all eyeing the box-to-box operator ahead of a potential summer move.

However, Juventus are also keen on making the Gabon international’s temporary stay permanent, while Arsenal are keeping tabs on the Old Lady’s decision.

Latterly, further suitors have emerged for Lemina, with the French source reporting that Leicester—who confirmed their place in next year’s Champions League—are also eyeing a move for the former FC Lorient starlet.
