Tottenham Hotspur have been offered the chance to sign Thomas Lemar from Atletico Madrid, per The Independent.
Lemar is said to be keen on a move away from the Spanish giants, with a €6m (£5m) loan fee reportedly needed to snaffle him away.
Any such deal could then include an option to buy, which The Independent reports would stand at €60m (£50.9m).
His manager at Atletico, Diego Simeone, has already claimed that Lemar has “failed to live up to expectations” at the club, per the report.
However, Spurs are not the only Premier League side interested, with Arsenal also said to be weighing up an approach.
The big fat Tottenham quiz of 2019 – how much do you remember about the last year at Spurs?
Lemar hasn’t been anywhere near good enough at Atleti. He has played 21 times in all competitions this season but has not scored a goal, nor has he registered an assist.
He last scored in La Liga in an April win over Eibar and one has to wonder if he would even get into the Spurs team.
He is primarily a left winger but Son Heung-Min occupies that position for the north London giants, and he has scored 10 goals and registered nine assists already this season.
Any move for Lemar would come with a potentially hefty price to bring him in; he simply isn’t worth it.
Meanwhile, Spurs fans have told chairman Daniel Levy to invest in one area in January.
