Thomas Lemar rejects Porto from dream England move as Everton, Wolves circle

Everton and Wolves have received encouragement in their bids to sign Thomas Lemar.

The Atletico Madrid flop is likely to leave this transfer window, with AS reporting that the 24-year-old was offered to Porto.

However, he turned down the move, and would rather head to the Premier League.

Lemar thinks his style suits the division, while he would likely earn more at a Premier League club as well.

Both Everton and Wolves want to sign the French winger, who Atletico signed in 2018 for £62 million.

The World Cup winner has failed to impress under Diego Simeone, and is surplus to requirements at the club.
