Attacking midfielder

According to L’Equipe, Atlético de Madrid are still keen on long-term transfer target Thomas Lemar. Monaco's 21-year-old attacking midfielder is one of the pearls of French football and has been on Atlético's wish lish for a long time. Reports in France today suggest that Lemar could be one of the first reinforcements at Atleti - once the FIFA transfer ban is lifted...

Interest from England, Germany and Italy

São Paulo centre-back, Lyanco

Lemar is contractually tied to Monaco until June 2020 and valued at 30 million euros. The problem facing Atlético is that they are not the only club who is interested in the player: Bayern Munich, Manchester City and Juventus are all monitoring his progress. Atlético are hoping to rebuild their midfield for the new campaign but first must wait to hear FIFA's decision on their transfer ban.

Fight on for Lyanco

Meanwhile, Juventus are said to have entered the battle for highly-rated São Paulo central defender Lyanco. “We have received an official offer from Juventus for Lyanco. There is also a written offer on the table from Atlético de Madrid. We will be studying both of them”, São Paulo president Carlos Augusto Silva Barros told La Gazetta dello Sport.
