Chelsea and Manchester City battling it out for Ligue 1 wonderkid
Manchester City and Chelsea are set to go head to head in the race to sign £30million-rated Monaco star Thomas Lemar, according to The Sun.
The versatile attacking midfielder has been in excellent form this season, helping Monaco to the top of Ligue 1 as they battle Paris Saint-Germain and Nice for the title.
The report claims Lemar is also on the radars of Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich, but the Premier League duo now head the queue.
With ten goals and six assists to his name this season, he has shone for Monaco alongside teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe and former Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao.
Both City and Chelsea are battling it out at the top of the Premier League but the latter are clear favourites to win the title, currently topping the table by eight points.
