Open a popup while opening a link

I want it so when I press a button, it will open up a popup and redirect the user to the a site, is there anyway I can do that?

Current code:
<a href="" class="popup-open link external item-link item-content" data-popup=".about"> <div class="item-media"><img style="border-radius:20%;" src="img/logo.png" width="60" alt="Logo"/></div> <div class="item-inner"> <div class="item-title-row"> <div class="item-title"> <span style="color:white">Title</span> </div> </div> <div class="item-subtitle"> <span style="color: #989898 ">Description</span> </div> </div> </a> </li> <li>
