According to Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato via Goal, West Ham are among a trio of Premier League clubs considering a summer swoop for Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina.
Mario Lemina looks set to leave Juventus this summer and West Ham face competition from Premier League rivals Arsenal and Watford to land the midfielder.
The 23-year-old is a central midfielder who has been at Juventus since 2015, when he completed a permanent switch from Marseille.
However, the Gabon international has not found game time easy to come by due to the sheer class that the Champions League finalists have at their disposal all over the pitch.
Lemina’s time at Juve has also not been helped by a back injury which he sustained at the African Cup of Nations and he has only made two appearances since then.
West Ham have previously been interested by the young midfielder and could revisit a move for him this summer.
However, there is already plenty of competition in the midfield ranks.
Mark Noble, Pedro Obiang and Cheikhou Kouyate often operate in that department with Josh Cullen returning from his successful loan spell with Bradford, Edimilson Fernandes continuing to improve and Havard Nordtveit undoubtedly keen to prove his doubters wrong next year.
