ATLETICO MADRID have reportedly decided to get rid of Arsenal target Thomas Lemar this summer.
The Frenchman, 24, failed to register a single goal or assist in 29 appearances this season.
Mundo Deportivo claim Diego Simeone has finally decided to “throw in the towel”.
The Spanish side plan to cut their losses on Lemar – who joined them from Monaco for £63million.
Since his arrival in 2018, he has a record of just three goals in 67 games.
Reports have suggested Atletico are prepared sell him in a cut-price deal this summer.
Despite his disappointing spell of form, Arsenal are still interested in signing him.
The Gunners chased the Frenchman while he was playing for Monaco.
And Mundo Deportivo claim Mikel Arteta’s side came close signing him in January.
In a bid to finally secure his signature this summer, Arsenal could include Alexandre Lacazette in the deal.
Manchester United have also been linked to Lemar after allegedly meeting up with his representatives.
