Arsenal handed a boost by Diego Simeone in Thomas Lemar chase

With Thomas Lemar being linked with a move to Arsenal, Diego Simeone has refused to rule out a transfer away from Atletico Madrid for the midfielder.

Since making the move to Atletico Madrid from AS Monaco back in 2018 for €60 million, Lemar has struggled to replicate his form in Spain.

The 24-year-old has been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham after just 18 months in the Spanish capital with Atletico and is currently sidelined with an injury.

Simeone has admitted that he cannot guarantee Lemar will stay at Atletico after recovering from his injury, "Lemar is an important player who hasn't been able to develop his game but who has characteristics that others don't have.

"If Lemar can stay or not...we know that agents work in an exemplary way. Clubs work in terms of the needs of the clubs.

"But, as a footballer, every time he has been available, he's played a lot more than he hasn't played. His characteristics have always excited me. But he hasn't been able to live up to expectations.

"Let's hope he has a good moment when he comes back from injury."
