Atletico Madrid confirm Thomas Lemar transfer as former Arsenal target set to join in £63.2m deal from Monaco

Atletico Madrid have confirmed the signing of Thomas Lemar from Monaco in a big-money deal thought to be worth around £63.2m (€72m).

The former Arsenal and Liverpool target’s France team-mate Antoine Griezmann has also committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new deal until 2023.

Griezmann was strongly linked with a move to Barcelona, but revealed his intention to stay ahead of the World Cup in the form of a video titled “The Decision.”

The good news continues for Diego Simeone with French defender Lucas Hernandez also penning new terms to tie his future to the Wanda Metropolitano until 2024.
