Arsenal have made a number of enquiries about Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina’s availability over the last 12 months but as yet have had no joy in negotiating a deal with the Serie A champions, according to Calcio Mercato.

The Italian giants plucked the 23-year-old from Marseille last year, with the Gabon international impressing for the Turin outfit over the last 12 months.

Lemina joined the Bianconeri on an initial loan deal from the Ligue 1 side but his move to northern Italy was made permanent over the summer.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is believed to be a big fan of the former France under-21 star, with the latest report suggesting that the midfielder’s future remains unclear.

When Juventus have everyone fit and firing it remains to be seen if Lemina will start for Max Allegri’s men, while the Gunners also have a plethora of options in the boiler room.

The report suggests that Wenger has not given up hope of landing the gifted midfielder but that the Serie A side value the former Lorient man at more than €20 million (£18 million).
