Besiktas express interest in Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina

Besiktas are interested in Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina.

Lemina has this season been on-loan with Galatasaray.

Fotomac says Gala are not planning to take up their option to purchase the player.

Lemina has instead been offered to Istanbul rivals Besiktas, who opted to move for Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny on loan last summer as opposed to Lemina.

Gabon international Lemina, 26, joined Saints from Juventus for around £15million in 2017 and has made 52 appearances for the club, scoring twice.
