According to DailyStar Marseille midfielder, Mario Lemina is an important target for Arsenal in this summer transfer window. The 22-year-old midfielder is currently on loan at Juventus. Making just seven Serie-A appearances in Italy, he has failed to make much of an impact this season.

Juventus are unlikely to offer a permanent deal to Lemina after such a disappointing season and it looks like the midfielder is set to return to his parent club at the end of this season.

In spite of Lemina’s return, Marseille will still look to sell him, in order to generate some funds and decrease their financial crisis.

According to many sources, Arsenal are one the clubs who are currently scouting the Gabonese international and monitoring his situation and future at Marseille.

Napoli, Sevilla, Valencia, Borussia Dortmund and also the current Premier League leaders, Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City are reportedly very much keen on signing the youngster along with Arsenal, but it looks like the Gunners have a little edge over the others.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will look for midfield reinforcements this summer and will surely try to lure the Juventus loanee. With Mathieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky and Mikel Arteta’s probable departure from the London club this summer Arsenal will have to sign lots of midfielders including both young talents and the experienced ones. Wenger has always given youngsters a healthy amount of opportunities to shine, players like Iwobi, Walcott and Wilshere have been brilliant under him since they have started playing under Arsene’s management.

Lemina joined from Lorient in Marseille for just around £3m in the year of 2013. With two years still left to run in his current contract at the Stade Velodrome, any club will have to pay a decent amount of money to grab the deal and the fee will surely be over £3m.
