Antoine Griezmann gets autographs from France 1998 World Cup heroes

"Over the next days, both clubs will work to close the agreement", the Madrid club said of the attacking midfielder usually deployed on the left.

Didier Deschamps left many top stars out of his World Cup squad but kept faith with Lemar, who scored recently for France in a win over Colombia and bagged a brace past year against the Dutch.

FC Barcelona transfer target Antoine Griezmann has reportedly made a massive decision regarding his future, amid rumours the Atletico Madrid man could soon team up with superstar Lionel Messi at the Camp Nou.

Griezmann has been dedicating a lot of time to his decision, and reports claim that he's turned to French teammates while preparing for the World Cup for advice.

Lemar was also tipped to join Liverpool as they seek to replace Philippe Coutinho.

Griezmann is looking to cap another spectacular club season, in which he scored 29 goals in 49 games as Atletico finished runners-up in La Liga behind Barcelona and lifted the UEFA Europa League.

"Today is not the day to talk about my future", he told reporters.

Should he make the switch, Griezmann would add further star power to an attack that already includes Messi, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele.

"I know that many of you were waiting for that".

Barcelona had hoped to sign the 27-year-old on July 1, when his release clause drops to €100 million, but Atletico have offered him an improved contract worth a reported €23m a year.

However, those figures will return to the previous numbers next month.
