The Times report that the Reds have been given permission to speak to Lemina over a potential transfer. Southampton are said to want their money back in a deal for the player they signed from Juventus two seasons ago.

Lemina has struggled for regular first team Premier League starts for Southampton and some fans have questioned whether he has the ability to step up for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

However, some Reds on twitter have pointed to Lemina’s asking price and see him as an adequate and far cheaper option to young Newcastle midfielder Sean Longstaff.
