A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have given their thoughts on the Le10 Sport report linking the Molineux side with Thomas Lemar.
The French outlet claims that Atletico Madrid have decided to part ways with the 24-year-old after two difficult years at the La Liga club.
Wolves are believed to be in concrete negotiations with Atleti over Lemar, with Jorge Mendes potentially facilitating between the two clubs.
Fellow Premier League side Everton were also thought to have been eyeing the Frenchman but have now reportedly dropped their interest.
Lemar enjoyed three superb seasons at Monaco between 2015 and 2018, helping the French top-flight side to the Ligue 1 title and the Champions League semi-finals in 2017.
The following season, he was named in the France squad for the 2018 World Cup finals and made one appearance en route to the trophy, the nation’s second triumph in the competition.
Last season, he made just 12 starts in all competitions – 29 appearances overall – and failed to get a single goal or assist.
Despite his recent struggles, Lemar is clearly a high-calibre creative player who doesn’t look like the right fit for a pragmatic Simeone side, but could well flourish under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Here is what some Wolves fans have made of the speculation:
if we sign either Thomas Lemar or Douglas Costa we are fighting Chelsea for best transfer window in the premier league

Lemar, Semedo and Douglas Costa I love this game

This guy was coached by Simeone, who made Jiménez look like Joelinton at Atléti. Even though I still believe that Lemar is a talented player but I would like to have him on loan with option to buy to see how he does. If he finds his Monaco form a fee of €25-30M is a great deal.

Lemar has an exceptional left foot so he would be a perfect fit, could probably play LWB aswell

Athletico system never suited him, check his 3 previous seasons. If anyone can get a tune out of him it’s our Nuno.

Would be a great signing and what a midfield we’d have
