Report: Hammers enquiry over former Juventus midfielder

According to Italian journalist Nicolò Schira ,  former Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina currently on loan at Fulham could leave Southampton this summer with both Genoa and West Ham making enquiries about his availability.

The 27-year-old has made 17 Premier League starts this season during his loan spell with Fulham, who have an option to make his transfer permanent in the summer. But with Scott Parker’s Premier League seriously in doubt that looks unlikely.

Having spent last season on loan at Galatasaray in Turkey, Lemina has not played for Southampton since May 2019 but still has two years remaining on his contract after being signed from Juventus in 2017 for a then club-record transfer fee of £15.4m.

It is understood that he is not part of Ralph Hasenhüttl’s plans for next season and will be allowed to leave for around £7m.

The defensive midfielder could provide important cover for Tomas Soucek and Delcan Rice with Mark Noble in his last year of his contract.

  1. More worried about claims moyes only gets 50mill in summer transfers! He needs 100mill and needs to get keeper centre back mid def left back and one top striker. Also needs to sell masu or Cresswell yarmo lanzini . If this isn’t possible for this bunch of billionare owners well sully anyway then please sell up and go your time has expired and we need to push on as a club . Anderson centre back for me is a must plus their keeper too. Striker can be anyone from four available top strikers and remember lingards cash needed has already been taken care of from sales of haller and West broms grady so that’s not a problem as didn’t spend so much in Jan. If we get a top centre back alongside Diop and have only too then I see we could also sell a player we’ll in form bar last two games Dawson who really isn’t a type for long term at our club and we have back ups too coming through the academy.
