The France international appears set to move to La Liga following three seasons with the principality club

Monaco have announced they have reached an agreement in principle to sell attacking midfielder Thomas Lemar to Atletico Madrid.

The Ligue 1 side said the two sides will “continue to work in the coming days in order to find a definitive agreement.”

The 22-year-old France international has been subject of interest from Arsenal and Liverpool among others, but he now appears destined for a move to La Liga.

The Guadeloupe-born attacker joined Monaco from Caen ahead of the 2015-16 season, and eventually established himself as one of Ligue 1’s best left-sided players.

Lemar broke through in the 2016-17 campaign, scoring 14 goals and adding 17 assists as Monaco won Ligue 1 and reached the Champions League semi-finals.

The France international could now be set to join up with his international team-mate Antoine Griezmann with the Rojiblancos — if the 27-year-old decides to stay put.
