Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina has opened up on reports that he is wanted by Premier League duo Arsenal and Watford.

The Gabon international found his game time limited at the Serie A champions this season, and although he made 41 appearances for Max Allegri’s side, most of his chances came off the bench.

The player, 23, has since been linked with a £20million move to the Emirates, with Watford also being credited with an interest, according to the Italian media.

And speaking about the links, the former Marseille star told French publication Foot Mercato: “I am flattered by the interest of Arsenal and Watford. I am playing for a big club now but I am happy about the interest of other clubs.

“I do not have a preference for any league. My future depends on who really wants me.”

Lemina has also been linked with a move to Lyon, but he admits making that move would be difficult given his Marseille allegiances.

“I don’t think I’ll be moving to Lyon. I am from Marseille and I am not interested in joining them. I don’t think I have a chance to return to Marseille,” he added.
