Lucas Hernandez set for Spain switch

Atletico Madrid defender Lucas Hernandez is set to choose representing Spain ahead of France at international level, say reports.

The 22-year-old is said to be in the final stages of formalising his Spanish citizenship documents despite representing France for five years at youth level.

The left-sided defender played up to Under-21 level with Les Bleus and France Football now insist he is set to switch to La Roja at senior level.

It is also rumoured that Lucas’s younger brother Theo – who now plays for Real Madrid – would also prefer to represent Spain ahead of France at international level.
