According to Turin based daily Tuttosport, Gabonese midfielder,Mario Lemina could leave Juventus in summer, with Watford and Crystal Palace both said to be interested.

The Bianconeri hierarchy have reportedly touted a fee of no less than €20 million for the 23 year-old who they paid Marseille an initial €9.5 million for in April last year. Monaco are also said to be interested.

The Turinese paper reveals that the former Marseille man is slipping down the hierarchy in Turin, with the likes of Stefano Sturaro and new signing Tomas Rincon ahead of him.

Crystal Palace, Watford, Monaco and Marseille are all after him. It appears, according to TS, that Lemina could have left in winter to go to Crystal Palace, in a three-way deal which would have seen Roma get Daniele Baselli and Juventus nab Leandro Paredes.

Apparently, Giallorossi Coach Luciano Spalletti put a stop to it.

Lemina has only made 13 Serie A starts in two seasons, and can only add twelve appearances as a sub. He’s scored two goals and made one assist. Having started the current campaign on the teamsheet, he has since found himself being sat more and more, and has also missed time due to injury.
