- Mario Lemina (@LeminaM_13) July 10, 2019Where will Lemina end up?
Premier League giants Manchester United have apparently been "given permission" to conduct transfer talks with Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina, who is interested in a move away from his current club this summer.
When asked if his aim was to stay in the Premier League, the Gabon worldwide said: "It is a very interesting league".
A Southampton departure certainly looks to be on the cards as Lemina was left out of their pre-season tour squad and has recently admitted that he is open to an exit, which could encourage Leicester to make a move.
The 25-year-old came through the ranks at French club Lorient, before joining Marseille and Juventus, and then the Saints in 2017.

'The last four months have not been easy for me, with my injury.
In spite of those numbers, Lemina said: 'I am truly looking to find consistency again, to become an important player in a team again with big objectives. "I want to show the whole world what I am capable of". So why not leave?
"We have very good discussions with the club". We are in agreement.
"Everything depends on the project that is proposed to me".
"As early as past year, I had set my conditions: I wanted to go elsewhere this summer", he said.
According to the report in The Times, Lemina is their latest transfer target intended at replacing the midfielder. Ander Herrera has left for Paris St-Germain whereas both Nemanja Matic and Fred had an underwhelming campaign deep down the midfield.
