Arsenal and Tottenham are both said to be interested in signing Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina this summer.

According to Foot Mercato, the Premier League duo are both keen on making a move for Lemina when the transfer window opens for business.

After Gabon failed to qualify for the World Cup, Lemina has no commitments this summer and will, therefore, be easier to negotiate with.

Arsenal may have the upperhand, with Lemina’s international teammate Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang currently leading the line for the Gunners.

West Ham are also thought to be interested, although they are unlikely to be able to compete with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham in the race to sign the midfielder.

Lemina joined Southampton last summer from Italian champions Juventus and has shown his quality in spells this season.

Injuries disrupted his debut season with Southampton, but that does not appear to have dampened his chances of getting a big move this summer.
