The 25-year-old has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United this summer but nothing came of it.
It will be interesting to see if the Molineux outfit can get a deal done.
Southampton will want to hold out for a premium but Wolves have the resources to make the move happen. Apparently, it could be a loan with obligation to buy.

Nuno could use another quality central midfielder in his side and Lemina would be ideal. He has already proven himself in the Premier League and he should be able to make an immediate impact for them next season.
Lemina will add drive, presence and flair to Nuno’s midfield. He could be the ideal partner for Neves next season.
Wolves will have to play a lot of games due to their participation in the Europa League and they will need a deeper squad.
A signing like Lemina would allow them to remain competitive on all fronts.
Be a great signing.

Would be a great signing, especially if it’s just an option to buy

Southampton fans have a pretty low opinion of this guy, i don’t really know why, i’ve always thought he was pretty good
