The Saints are likely to face late competition from a host of clubs
Southampton are set to beat a host of clubs to the signature of Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina, according to reports.
The Gabon international had been expected to head to Sevilla as part of Steven N’Zonzi’s proposed transfer to the Serie A giants.
But the Saints have moved to the head of the queue for the 23-year-old and it is understood he will undergo a medical with the Premier League side on Sunday.
According to RMC Sport, Lemina will complete his transfer in the coming days after Southampton agreed a £16.2million fee with Juventus.
