Atletico Madrid have reached an agreement with Monaco to sign winger Thomas Lemar on the same day Antoine Griezmann refused to commit his future to the Spanish club.
Lemar, 22, had been linked with moves to Liverpool and Arsenal over the past 12 months but now he looks set to make the switch to LaLiga.
Atletico said in a statement on their official website on Tuesday: "Atletico de Madrid and AS Monaco have achieved a preliminary agreement over the transfer of Thomas Lemar to our club.
"Over the next days, both clubs will work to close the agreement for the definitive transfer."
The France international, currently in Russia with Les Bleus for the World Cup, joined Monaco in 2015 from Caen and made his international debut in November 2016.
