Atletico put a contract offer on the table for Lemar quite a while ago but he is yet to offer a meaningful response. Diego Simeone is hopeful that the 26-year-old, who he values, commits his future to the side from the Spanish capital.
Lemar has been at the Wanda Metropolitano for four seasons having arrived for a fee of €70m from Monaco, at the time the most expensive signing in the history of Atletico.
The Frenchman has since played 143 games for the club and contributed nine goals and 14 assists. Injury problems have slowed his progress down but he still managed to produce four goals and six assists in the 35 La Liga games he played this year.
