The agent of Gabonese international Mario Lemina is reported to have offered the Juventus midfielder to Arsenal, although Watford remains keen.

This is according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli who claims the Juventus man is very keen on a move to north London. 

In the interim, Lemina’s representative has engaged the Gunners on a potential switch this summer.

Lemina has spoken of his desire to leave the Turin outfit in search of regular game time and has been quoted saying that he would like to go to a club where he would see more game time.

“I want to play more," he said. "I think it's right for me to play more, find a club capable of giving me more space,” Lemina was quoted saying.

 “At 23 I want to show what I can do."

Arsenal is not the only English side to be flirting with the Panthers international however, as Watford are also reported to be after the former Marseille midfielder.

The Libreville-born joined Juventus from Marseille in 2015 but has since struggled to become a regular starter for the Italian champions.

He started his youth career at FC Lorient before he was soon sold to Marseille.

He made 29 appearances across all competitions for the Old Lady last season, scored and assisted once.
