Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar is still searching for a new club after he was told by Atletico Madrid that he is free to leave the club this month.

According to Spanish publication, Marca the winger's agent Jorge Mendes has been in talks with Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Wolverhampton this month.

The former AS Monaco man has had an unsuccessful time in Madrid, failing to justify the fee Atletico Madrid paid to Monaco for his services which was confirmed by his manager Diego Simeone.

“The facts speak for themselves, better than words. It is certain that he has not been able to show all his qualities,” Simeone said last week.

“Each time that he has been available, I have tried to play him. I have always been enthusiastic about his qualities as a player.

“He has not met the expectations set for him, but we have always had the same expectations.

“Today, who is to know if he will stay or not. His representatives are working hard. The clubs, they operate on what they need.”

Atletico Madrid paid Monaco a reported fee of €60 million (£52.9m/$70.5m) for Thomas Lemar in June 2018.
