Insider claims Arsenal will discuss transfer with African star’s agent this week
Emanuele Giulianelli believes Arsenal will receive contact from Mario Lemina's agent in the coming days about a potential transfer
Mario Lemina’s agent will get in touch with Arsenal about a potential move from Juventus, according to Emanuele Giulianelli.
The Juve midfielder has been linked with a move to the north London side in the 2017 summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old was a bit-part player in the Juventus team last term as the Italian giants eased to another Serie A title.
The Gabon international scored two goals and made one assist in 29 appearances in all competitions in the 2016-17 season.
Arsenal have been touted as a potential destination this summer as Lemina looks to secure a move away from the Emirates Stadium.
Serie A expert Giulianelli revealed that the Juventus midfielder’s agent is set to reach out to the FA Cup winners.
“In the coming days Mario Lemina’s agent will be in touch with Arsenal checking the interest of the club in the Juventus man: but midfield isn’t the main priority yet,” Giulianelli told Tribal Football.
Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a spot in the Europa League.
The Gunners missed out on a Champions League spot after Liverpool beat Arsenal to a top-four place on the final day of the season.
