According to The Telegraph, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are trying to sign Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar on loan until the end of the season.

The 24 year old, who won the World Cup with France, has failed to live up to expectations following his €60million move from Monaco in 2018.

Chelsea prefer a loan deal for Lemar as it gives the club the opportunity to evaluate whether the winger is worth signing on a permanent deal.

The Telegraph claim Chelsea have made contact with Atletico Madrid about the possibility of signing Lemar on loan.

Chelsea have shown interest in Lemar in the past and considered making a move in the January window in 2018 before he joined Atletico.
