Mario Lemina expects to hold talks with Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, amid speculation linking him with both Watford and Arsenal.

The 23-year-old endured a frustrating campaign with the perennial Italian champions, making just eight Serie A appearances, and is understood to want a new challenge.

He has already revealed he is flattered to be linked with Premier League sides and confirmed he will seek to clarify his future in the near future.

“I think before pre-season we’ll have a discussion about that. We’re are going to talk to each other,” the Gabon international told French site RMC.

“We’re going to see what they really want to do with me and what I want to do in terms of how much playing time I’ll get.

“We’re going to put everything on the table and speak about it calmly.”

Lemina admits being frustrated with his limited game time in Turin, where the likes of Sami Khedira, Miralem Pjanic and Claudio Marchisio have made the midfield their own.

While the former Marseille and Lorient man is enjoying playing with such established names, he accepts he needs to start playing regularly.

“I learn alongside these players,” he explained. “I learn a lot, I gain a lot of experience. But it is true I have to play a lot more to be able to make a name for myself like they have.

“Personally it was quite a difficult season. I would like to have played more. I’m a young player, I really need to play.”

Having already admitted to being flattered by potential interest from the Hornets, Lemina says he is open to perspective offers, despite insisting he is focused on Juve.

He said: “Everything might interest me. You have to see the project, the feeling that you get from the board.

“Of course they're interesting projects. But for the moment, my head's at Juve. After talking to them, we'll be able to talk about real interest or not.”
