Juventus meet with Everton for Lemina & Neto

June 15, 2017 - 7:58 am

Juventus have met with Everton regarding midfielder Mario Lemina and goalkeeper Norberto Neto.

Gazzetta Dello Sport and Goal Italia both report that the Bianconeri met with Everton regarding the two players, both of whom are expected the leave Turin this summer.

The Gabonese midfielder has been deemed surplus to requirements and will be allowed to leave, and while Valencia are strongly interested in the player, it’s reported that Everton have expressed a strong interest as well.

Neto is in a similar situation, keen to play more regularly, which could be made all the more difficult by the potential signing of Wojciech Szczesny

CorSport report that Marotta values Lemina at €20m while Neto is closer to the €10m mark.

Watford, Napoli and Valencia are also interested in Neto and may fight it out for the Brazilian keeper.

    Seems fully groundless speculation on the part of Neto, as the toffees are due to plunder a huge fee for Pickford, who was often superb for Sunderland last season. Cannot see Koeman being a fan of Lemina…

      Yes, done deal for Pickford. Who would want that moustache on Lemina’s face?

        No idea on Lemina. Other than he is black and kinda french, and that seems the most fashionable target for english clubs, he has barely played for us, and has rarely played well. I’d be surprised to find Ronald interested or Wenger. How could he hope to get in either of their sides?

        Or perhaps these clubs see him as an investment. Chuck us 15-20m, we make a profit, small but still…a space is also freed up. One season of playing even half regularly in the PL and his value will instantly be 30+. For his age, colour and hairstyle…
