MADRID — Atletico Madrid says it has reached a deal to sign France international Thomas Lemar from Monaco.

Atletico announced Tuesday it has a "preliminary agreement" with Monaco and "both clubs will work" to complete the transfer.

The 22-year-old winger is with France in Russia for the World Cup. He has scored three goals in 12 matches with the national team.

Lemar was a key player for Monaco when it reached the Champions League semifinals in the 2016-17 season.

Atletico won the Europa League this year.
