Southampton are yet to decide what to do with Mario Lemina this summer after he returned from a loan spell with Fulham.

That’s according to Foot Mercato, who say the Saints have not definitively decided to let Lemina go as the interest in him ramps up.

The website says the likes of Nice, Watford, Sevilla and Newcastle are ‘very interested’ in the midfielder and would all be happy to take him.

Newcastle’s interest has also been reported in England, while there are reports in Turkey that Galatasaray would like to bring him back after his successful loan spell there two years ago.

Southampton, though, ‘don’t want to rush into the deal’ and are not prepared to let Lemina go that easily despite his contract ending next summer.

Rather than being pushed towards an exit, they would actually be fine with keeping him in the squad after his ‘satisfactory summer preparation’.

Southampton seemingly want to sit down and have a think before rushing into anything, and so, anything to do with Lemina will be sorted ‘in the next few days’, meaning those interested clubs may just have to wait before getting their man.
