Liverpool are interested in signing Southampton star Mario Lemina, according to reports in France.

Lemina completed a club-record £15.4million move to St Mary’s from Juventus last summer and the 24-year-old has managed one goal in 19 appearances for Mauricio Pellegrino’s side.

The Gabon international was heavily linked with Arsenal before joining the Saints but, according to L’Équipe, the Gunners have dropped their interest.
