Wolves open Atletico Madrid talks for Lemar

Wolves are lining up a bid for Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar.

Le 10 Sport says Wolves have opened talks with Atletico about a fee for the France international. Negotiations are being driven by super agent Jorge Mendes, who is close to both clubs.

Wolves are keen to secure Lemar in a permanent deal, though Atletico are insisting on top price.

Everton were also interested, but pulled out of talks due to Atletico's valuation.

Lemar isn't in the first-choice plans of Atletico coach Diego Simeone and has struggled for form and fitness since his move from France.
