club Valencia are poised to make a €20m (£17.4m) bid for midfielder Mario Lemina, according to Tuttosport.

The Turin based newspaper believes the Spanish side are keen to follow up their purchase of Juve striker in January, by signing a second player from the Bianconeri.

The 23 year old has been heavily linked with a move to and Watford in recent weeks with the Evening Standard in particular strongly suggesting that the will make a move for the Gabon international. When asked about the reports by French news outlet Footmercato (translated by the Standard), Lemina said he was “flattered” by the interest from the Premier League:

“I am flattered by the interest of and Watford. I am playing for a big club now but I am happy about the interest of other clubs.I do not have a preference for any league. My future depends on who really wants me.”

Lemina only signed permanently at last summer from after a season long spell in Italy. He has however struggled for game time during his second season in Serie A, making just eight league starts, and 19 appearances in total, scoring one goal and providing one assist.
