By Harvey Byrne

Juventus have set their asking price for West Ham and Tottenham target Mario Lemina at £10-15million, according to a report.

Italian website Calciomercato claims that the Hammers and Spurs are interested in the midfielder along with Swansea and Leicester.

It is said that West Ham are one of four Premier League clubs have made contact with the Italian giants about the possibility of signing Lemina this summer.

The Gabon international defensive midfielder had an impressive loan spell with the Bianconeri in the recently completed season, making 17 appearances in all competitions.

The Serie A champions will make the loan move from Marseille permanent when the summer transfer window opens on 1 July for £7million.

However, reports in Italy are suggesting that there is high demand for the former France Under-21 international from the Premier League and that Juventus would be willing to sell on the 22-year-old if his asking price is met this summer.

Lemina was initially linked with the Hammers before he joined Juventus on-loan last summer and it is expected that Slaven Bilic will return for the strong midfielder for the next campaign.

West Ham are eager to bolster their squad this summer as they prepare for European football and their first season at the Olympic Stadium.
