Watford, Palace explore Mario Lemina deal

Lemina on EPL radar

Premier League duo Watford and Crystal Palace are both reported to be lining up offers for Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina.



The 23-year-old had been a success during the early stages of his Ligue 1 career, but a move to Juventus from Marseille has done no good to his progress.

Italian sources report that the Gabon international is on the radar of the English pairing following his limited action at the Old Lady this term.

Lemina has earned just 29 outings in Turin since the summer of 2015, and he could be offloaded should any side match his £17m valuation.

Watford are, for now, deemed favourites to sign the midfield anchorman with Palace required to save their top-flight status in order to lure the talented player.

Lemina has been previously the subject of Premier League interest with FA Cup quarter-finalists Arsenal alleged to have monitored his progress.
