Liverpool target Thomas Lemar set to sign for Atletico

Liverpool target Thomas Lemar set to sign for Atletico

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

The France worldwide - who has spent three seasons with Monaco since arriving from Caen - is in Russian Federation for the World Cup.

France travel to the World Cup on the back of a surprising 1-1 draw with the United States of America in Lyon on Saturday night, but Griezmann reckons there's no need for his teammates to panic, and says their preparation for Australia starts now.

The Gunners came close to signing Lemar for around £80m last summer on deadline day before the deal fell through.




The 22-year-old has notched 18 assists in 64 appearances for the club, helping to add even more creativity to an already talented front line at Atletico.

France coach Didier Deschamps said one part of Antoine Griezmann's club future was clear - the Atletico Madrid forward is staying in Spain.

Deschamps prohibits players from undergoing negotiations during tournaments, which provides a further reason to believe that Griezmann's future will be public knowledge before France begin the competition. According to Canal + France (via Sport), Griezmann has called a press conference for Tuesday afternoon, and will announce that he is set to remain in the Spanish capital next season.

"I can only say that to win the Champions League you have to have the best players". Griezmann, however, decided it wasn't the time to talk about his decision but he did at least admit that a decision has been made.
