Reported Wolves and Everton target favours Premier League move

Thomas Lemar would favour a move to the Premier League, amid transfer links to Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton.

The Atletico Madrid winger is unlikely to remain with the Spanish giants after a poor season in 2019/20 where he failed to register any goals or assists.

His poor form does not appear to be putting teams off though with Wolves and Everton both keen on the Frenchman (Le10 Sport), whose transfer cost Atleti a whopping £52.7 million in 2018 (Guardian).

Foot Mercato say Lemar has actually rejected a proposal from FC Porto, and that the 24-year-old would like his next move to be to the English top-flight.

Arguably, Everton and Wolves both have need for an extra wide player, but Lemar’s struggles in Spain may see both teams unwilling to offer too much.

 

TBR’s View – Lemar a gamble

Ideally Atleti would allow a loan move, but the Spaniards may so wish to try and get him off the books and bring to an end a move that clearly hasn’t worked out.

If either side did take a punt on Lemar, they’d hope to see the return of the player who tore defences apart for AS Monaco.

That player would be an upgrade on Theo Walcott, and a decent replacement for Adama Traore if the Spaniard left Molineux.
