Southampton not interested in loan deals for Lemina

Southampton not interested in loan deals for Lemina Southampton are refusing to let Mario Lemina leave the club on loan this summer. The Daily Echo reports that the Saints will rebuff any approaches from clubs to sign the midfielder on a temporary basis. However, they will consider a deal to sell him permanently, if their asking price is met. Serie A side Atalanta are among the most recent sides to be linked with a loan move for the player, but the Saints aren’t interested. Lemina had a season to forget last time out after suffering various injury problems. He only managed to make 18 league starts last season in the Premier League, registering just one goal and one assist along the way.

MANCHESTER UNITED have told Southampton they will not be used as the bait to prompt a £ 30 million auction for wantaway star Mario Lemina . United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is fed up with agents talking up moves either in or out of Old Trafford. He does not want his hand to be forced

Southampton have reportedly upped their valuation of midfielder Mario Lemina, according to reports from Football London.

The Saints now want over £30 million for the midfielder, after reports said that they would accept a deal of just £15 million for the Gabonese midfielder.

Lemina is reportedly wanting to leave Southampton, and was left out of the squad that travelled on the pre-season tour of Austria.

He had difficulties with injuries last season, but is reportedly one of the players that Ralph Hasenhuttl wants to sell ahead of the 2019/20 season.

Manchester United and Arsenal are both reportedly looking at a deal for Lemina, but may be put off by the high asking price.

Arsenal especially may be out of the race, due to the Gunners not having much money to spend in this transfer window.

Therefore, the two clubs may try to negotiate with Southampton in an attempt to get a lower fee for their target.
