Jorge Mendes has reportedly lined up a string of transfer meetings for this week as he aims to get Thomas Lemar a Premier League move.
Lemar has struggled to make an impact since opting for a big-money move to Atletico Madrid rather than Arsenal back in the summer of 2018.
But he has been the subject of fresh links with the Gunners as Mikel Arteta aims to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window and he looks for a fresh start.
Wolves have also been linked with an ambitious move due to their links with Mendes, whilst Chelsea and Tottenham have also been mentioned.
According to Marca, Mendes has lined up ‘various meetings’ this week with Premier League clubs in a bid to get the player a move.

Lemar saw his hopes of a move potentially threatened by an injury, but he is now back in full training and could make his first appearance of 2020 against Leganes on Sunday.
That game could prove to be his last outing in an Atletico Madrid shirt with just nine days left for Mendes to secure him a move by finding a suitor.

They are relying on the departure of Lemar for a big fee to fund a move for Edinson Cavani as they eye more striking options in the transfer window.
