Italian newspaper Tuttosport believe Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina is likely to be heading to the Premier League rather than Valencia.

The Spanish club offered €20m (£17.6m) for the Gabonese star but they wanted to have the player on a season long loan deal prior to agreeing to a permanent purchase. It seems such a deal does not interest Juve, and Tuttosport say this leaves only Arsenal and Watford in the running for the 23 year old.

The Italian publication suggest a bid of between €18m (£16m) and €20m (£17.6m) could be enough for the Gunners or the Hornets to seal a deal for the midfielder.

Lemina has struggled for matches since joining the Bianconeri permanently from Marseille last summer. He made just eleven starts and 29 appearances in all competitions and he has spoken out over the past week about his willingness to leave Turin in order to play more. Whether Arsenal will make a move for the midfielder in the coming weeks, we will have to wait and see.
