Mario Lemina would prefer a move to Manchester United ahead of Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Daily Star, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that Southampton midfielder Lemina is attracting interest from two of the Premier League’s biggest clubs this summer.

The same article states that the Gabon international has his eyes set on a potential move to Manchester United despite his compatriot Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang playing at the north London side.

According to the same story, the Saints have already granted Manchester United permission to talk to Lemina in the summer transfer window.

The Daily Star goes on to state that Manchester United won’t accelerate any interest in Lemina until Paul Pogba’s future is resolved.

Lemina has scored one goal in 49 games in all competitions over the past two seasons since his club-record £15.4m move to Southampton from Juventus in 2017.

The Gabon international won two Serie A titles during his spell at Juve before the attacking midfielder completed a switch to the south coast.

Manchester United have already signed Swansea City midfielder Daniel James and Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the current transfer window.

The Red Devils haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013, when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.
