Plenty of Everton fans have been lauding a transfer link to Thomas Lemar as AS have reported that the Atletico Madrid ace is holding out for a move to the Premier League in the summer transfer window.
However, according to the outlet, Carlo Ancelotti’s team may face competition from Wolves to get his signature over the dotted line after he already rejected Portuguese side FC Porto.
Would Lemar start for Everton?
The publication also states that he could cost between 25 and 30 million euros, which is the equivalent of between around £22.3 million and £26.7 million.
Indeed, the 24-year old was a key part of the AS Monaco team that beat French giants PSG to the Ligue 1 title in the 2016/17 term, scoring a relatively impressive nine goals and making a further 12 assists in 34 games, as per Transfermarkt.
The winger was also part of the France squad that won the 2018 FIFA World Cup, beating Croatia 4-2 in the final (per the website).
These members of the Goodison Park faithful lauded the news on Twitter:
