According to French sports daily L'Equipe, Atletico Madrid sporting director Andrea Berta visited Monaco earlier this month and has managed to strike a deal with the Principality club.

Lemar is a known target of Liverpool and Arsenal, but the forward is set to join the La Liga side after the club announced a deal had been agreed on their Twitter account.

Lemar has scored 22 goals and registered 32 assists in 127 games over the past three seasons for Les Monégasques since joining the club from Caen.

Antoine Griezmann has disappointed both Atletico Madrid and Barcelona fans by refusing to publicly announce if he has decided which club he will be playing for next season.

Griezmann insists he is made a decision on his club future but has refused to reveal if he will remain with Atletico next season.

Protesters this spring called for a United Nations resolution demanding recognition of the country under the name of Macedonia . The country was also accepted to the United Nations in 1993 as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).

Having previously stated that he would announce his decision before France's opening World Cup game on Saturday, Griezmann chose to keep quiet.

But those closest to the 27-year-old are urging him to stay at Atletico, sources said, with one source indicating there is no sign at this time that Griezmann is planning on a move to Barcelona.

Griezmann's intention is to make an announcement where he will explain his decision and the motives behind it.

Griezmann, 27, had been whispered as a transfer target of almost every big club on Earth for several seasons, with Barcelona the latest and most often linked to the Frenchman.

"It's good that you're taking an interest", Griezmann said after France's 1-1 friendly draw with the United States.
