midfielder Mario Lemina has confirmed that he is considering his options and will look to speak with manager before deciding whether or not he wants to leave the champions this summer.

Speaking to French TV station RMC (quotes via the Gazzetta Dello Sport), the Gabonese revealed he has been frustrated by the lack of playing time at Juve this season:

“On a personal level, it was quite a difficult season. I wanted to play more, I’m young, I need to play more to be able to impose myself.”

The 23 year old featured 29 times in all competitions for the Bianconeri last season but he was limited to just eleven starts. His lack of matches has prompted talk of a move to the with both Arsenal and reportedly interested. Lemina said that both clubs could be a possible destination for him, but he wants to speak to Juventus first about his future at the club:

“Two interesting projects. You can be interested, but you have to also see the intentions of the managers. But for now I just think of Juve, even before deciding, I want to talk to the club and see what they really want from me and what I want to do myself, compared to game time. But there’s no rush. “

Lemina only joined Juventus on a permanent deal from last summer. Prior to that he had played on a season long with the Italian club.
