Everton launching bid for Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar

Everton are eyeing Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar.

Le 10 Sport says Everton chiefs, along with manager Carlo Ancelotti, believe they can help Lemar recapture his best form after a disappointing past season in Madrid.

Everton are ready to formalise their interest, though will warn Atletico they must accept a hefty hit on the original €70m they paid Monaco two years ago for the attacker.

Lemar has been frozen out by coach Diego Simeone since the season restart and has little chance of a future with Atletico.

The France international's contract runs to 2023.
