Chelsea and Tottenham battling for Lemar
Chelsea and Tottenham are both going head to head as they fight to sign Atletico Madrid winger Thomas Lemar.
The 24-year-old is wanted on loan by the Premier League duo, with The Telegraph reporting that Atletico have told the player he can leave the club during the January transfer window.
Spurs are said to have registered interest in Lemar but now Chelsea have jumped ahead of Jose Mourinho’s men in the race to sign the France international by making an offer.
Lemar has not lived up to expectations since making a €60 million (£51m) switch from Monaco in 2018.
