Lots of Wolves fans have had their say on Twitter to the suggestion that Thomas Lemar will not be coming to Molineux.

Despite being linked continuously to the Black Country over the past few weeks, respected journalist from the Athletic Tim Spiers has come out and quashed the rumours.

When asked by a fan whether there was any truth in the rumour that Atletico Madrid were looking for Jorge Mendes to try and get a deal done between the club, he said that he heard there was nothing in the deal, which seemed to disappoint a few fans.

Would you pay £60m for Thomas Lemar?

Definitely, class player

No thanks, not for that money

After the tweet, popular fan account @TalkingWolves tweeted about the reporter’s quotes, to which many fans responded with their personal opinion on the incident.

There was a pretty mixed response in all fairness. Some suggested that Tim Spiers hasn’t got the best track racord, others suggested that they didn’t want the World Cup winner, while other fumed that he wasn’t coming through the door at Molineux.

Here is some of that mix below…

With reports suggesting that Atletico are wanting to shift off the winger for a fee of around £60m – even if it does come after a loan spell – it shouldn’t come as a huge shock that the club doesn’t want to pursue the deal.

Defenders and strikers are clearly more pressing issues for the club with a big 2020 ahead, so that is probably where the work is being done at the moment.
