Southampton are set to make Juventus’ Mario Lemina the club’s second signing of the summer, per multiple sources.
According to Sky Sports News, the two clubs have reached an agreement of £16m, with the fee potentially rising to £20m.
Lemina, who has spent the last two seasons at the Serie A giants, is expected to undergo his medical at Southampton on Monday.
The 23-year-old was reportedly on Southampton’s radar before he elected to move to Juventus where he has won two league titles and two Coppa Italia cups. He, however, failed to secure a regular place in the line-up.
Stoke, meanwhile, miss out of Lemina after they and Juventus were unable to come to an agreement on Friday. Reports suggest the Potters proposed a bid of £13.5m during a meeting in London.
Lemina will become Mauricio Pellegrino’s second summer capture following the arrival of Polish defender Jan Bednarek.
