According to Sky Italia reported via Inside Futbol, Mario Lemina is a summer transfer target for West Ham United.

Mario Lemina is also a target for Everton as the two Premier League sides prepare to go head to head in the battle to sign the Juventus midfielder.

Mario Lemina is reportedly prepared to leave Juventus in a bid to get more regular playing time elsewhere.

This is something that West Ham would probably be able to provide for the Gabon international, who has nine senior international caps to his name after switching allegiance from France.

The former Lorient and Marseille midfielder plays as a central midfielder who can do both the defensive and the attacking work in the middle of the park.

West Ham apparently hold a serious interest in the 23-year-old as Slaven Bilic potentially looks at bringing in another central midfielder.

Looking ahead to the opening fixture against Manchester United, West Ham are looking a bit light in the central midfield department.

Pedro Obiang and Edimilson Fernandes are the only two fit central midfielders on our books after we sent Josh Cullen out on loan to Bolton Wanderers.

Mark Noble and Cheikhou Kouyate are doubts, meaning that Bilic could draft in a new central midfielder.
