Lucas Hernandez appears set to choose Spain over France at international level

22-year-old left-sided defender Lucas Hernandez is in the process of finalising and earning Spanish citizenship, in an attempt encouraged and led by the Spanish FA’s Sporting Director Fernando Hierro to ensure the defender plays for the Spanish national team, according to France Football.

Lucas Hernandez is currently a key part of Europe’s best defence at Atletico Madrid this season, and Spain boss Julen Lopetegui would like to bring in the Frenchman as soon as possible.

If Didier Deschamps wants Hernandez, he will have to move fast.
