Arsenal, Liverpool Target Thomas Lemar Agrees to Join Atletico Madrid

13 June 2018

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi admits that signing Antoine Griezmann from rivals Atletico Madrid this summer would be a "brilliant" coup for his side.

Lemar is now on global duty with France at the World Cup, and will link up with his new team-mates after the tournament once the deal is officially confirmed.

"The two clubs will continue to work in the coming days in order to find a definitive agreement". The future of Antoine Griezmann is still a mystery after the French frontman didn't respond to demands from the media to reveal his decision on where he'll be playing his club football next season.

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

However, at a national team press conference in Russian Federation, the 27-year-old repeatedly laughed off questions regarding a potential move before claiming he has made up his mind where he will be playing next season. But we still have time to correct mistakes.

While Liverpool and Arsenal have been interested in signing him again this summer, with Chelsea also said to be keen, none of the Premier League clubs have made a concrete offer.

"It's good that you're taking an interest", Griezmann said after France's 1-1 friendly draw with the United States.

Lemar, who joined Monaco from Caen in 2015, was a key player for the principality club when they reached the Champions League semifinals in the 2016-17 season.
