Thomas Lemar: Atletico Madrid reach 'preliminary agreement' to sign Monaco winger

Thomas Lemar: Atletico Madrid reach 'preliminary agreement' to sign Monaco winger

Arsene Wenger was reportedly targeting Lemar to be the replacement for Alexis Sanchez last summer transfer window deadline day as the Gunners were working on shipping Sanchez out to Manchester City.

'The two clubs will continue to work in the coming days in order to find a definitive agreement'.

Griezmann has a choice over whether he will remain with Atletico Madrid, who are desperate to keep him, or make the switch to La Liga rivals Barcelona in a €100m transfer.

The winger still did enough to secure a place in Didier Deschamps' France squad for the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Griezmann is expected to announce his future before his nation's World Cup campaign begins against Australia on Saturday.

Lemar, a winger, is with France in Russian Federation for the World Cup.

Lemar was also tipped to join Liverpool as they seek to replace Philippe Coutinho.

Griezmann said earlier on Tuesday that he had made up his decision on his future but would not reveal his plans, though sources have since said all signs point to him returning to Atletico.

He has scored three goals in 12 matches with the national team since his November 2016 debut. "Yes, I have already made a decision about my future".

"However, today is not the time, nor the place, to say what it is".

If the Catalan club signed him now, it would cost them €200 million but if they wait until the turn of the month, it will be halved to €100 million.
