Thomas Lemar came to Atletico Madrid as a big-name signing after excellent performances for Leonardo Jardim’s Monaco.
However, Lemar couldn’t fit into Diego Simeone’s system.
It’s increasingly likely that the Frenchman will leave the club. Atletico will try to recoup their losses from the whooping €70 million transfer fee.
It seems like Lemar’s next destination is the Premier League. According to Standard, Chelsea will only have to pay around €7 million for a loan move.
In case the Blues want to sign him permanently, they’ll have to shell out €60 million in the summer.
It looks like a low risk – high reward situation for Frank Lampard.
However, Tottenham and Manchester United are also rumored to be competing for Lemar’s signature.
