Southampton star Mario Lemina has tweeted a video of some of his highlights with the club in what looks like a message to transfer suitors Manchester United and Arsenal.
The Gabon international is not the biggest name in the Premier League by any means, but has emerged as a target for big clubs this summer, according to reports.
It remains to be seen if the 25-year-old will definitely get a move, but the video message below suggests he’s eager for a new challenge and wants to show suitors what he’s capable of with an impressive highlights package…

“I know what I can reach and will fight for it,” he says in the tweet, signalling his ambition.
Arsenal can’t afford to be too picky this summer so could benefit from signing Lemina, though United fans might hope their club aims higher.
Still, with Ander Herrera leaving on a free to PSG, a signing like this that shouldn’t cost a huge amount might be a smart piece of business to strengthen the depth of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad.
Unsurprisingly, some fans responded to the tweet, with United and Arsenal fans telling him to join, while Saints fans hit out at his antics…

One trick pony, do one and go and sit on the bench at another club.
