Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina is set for a medical at Southampton on Sunday, sources close to the player have told ESPN FC.
Stoke are also interested in Lemina and hope to hijack Southampton’s deal for the Gabon international, with Juve in London this weekend to play Tottenham in a friendly at Wembley.
Lemina has spent the last two seasons at Juventus after initially joining on loan from Marseille before making the move to Turin permanent last summer.
The 23-year-old has struggled to hold a place in Massimiliano Allegri’s side and he could be tempted to move on in search of regular first-team football.
A number of other clubs in the Premier League and across Europe are monitoring Lemina’s situation at Juventus.
