According to Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, Wolves are leading the race to sign Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal have all been linked with the winger.

The French winger has fallen out of favour in the Spanish capital, scoring just once in 21 appearances this season.

Atletico Madrid paid £51million French club Monaco to sign the winger 18 months ago but are now keen to sell the World Cup winner and recoup the transfer fee they paid.

Wolves are reportedly leading the race for the winger due to their special relationship with the player’s agent, Jorge Mendes.
