Mario Lemina has been left out of Southampton’s pre-season camp as the player looks to move and the Saints look to prepare for the new season with players who want to remain with them.

On Tuesday it was widely reported that Arsenal, Manchester United and Leicester City wanted to sign Mario Lemina who is likely available for around £18m.

Now, it seems clear that he will be on his way this summer only a year after arriving from Juventus for £15.53m.

Before these comments, Lemina said, “The last four months have not been easy for me, with my injury. The coach put his team together. I want to start afresh. So why not leave?”

Arsenal have maintained a relatively steady interest in the player and reportedly almost signed him in 2017 before Arsene Wenger blocked the move.

The 25-year-old midfielder is under contract with Southampton until 2022.
