Arsenal calls Mendes to get Lemar deal done

Arsenal are calling up Jorge Mendes to help negotiate a deal with Atletico Madrid for Thomas Lemar.

The France attacker is a loan target for the Gunners.

Marca says Mendes is the Gunners' "most trusted agent", and they are relying on his help to get a deal done.

Lemar has remained on Arsenal's radar since moving to Atletico - but how a deal could be structured is unknown at this stage - with the budget restraints the club have in place.

Lemar was signed by Diego Simeone's side for £63million in 2018 after a blistering spell with Monaco in Ligue 1.

But the French World Cup winner has fallen out of favour at the Wanda Metropolitano, having started just nine of their 18 La Liga matches so far this season.
