Where is Mario Lemina headed this summer?
Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina has revealed that he wants to remain in the Premier League, but with one of the ‘very biggest clubs’.

Lemina recently admitted that he would be willing to leave Southampton, after spending nearly two years at the club.

As a result, both Manchester United and Arsenal are supposedly looking into signing him.
Now, in a boost to both of those clubs, Lemina has claimed that he wants to remain in England, but play at one of the ‘very biggest clubs’.
