Arsenal launch an 18m bid formal bid for the La Liga star:

Since the start of this transfer window Arsenal have been heavily linked with arguably the most exciting player outside the top 3 from La Liga, Real Sociedad’s Antoine Griezmann. You would think that the player’s nationality is French hence he’ll obviously be linked with Arsenal but many of the reliable journalists and websites have reported it so you cannot rule out the speculation.

Arsenal have the financial backing to strengthen their squad this time around and the inclusion of a World Class talent like Griezmann would certainly help them.

The Metro claims that The Gunners have already ‘kick-started’ their summer spending by making a ‘formal bid’ for long-term transfer target, Antoine Griezmann. Arsenal fans will likely have heard this name numerous times before. The Real Sociedad wing-wizard has been in excellent form over the last 18 months and his French heritage has had the Press linking him with a move to The Emirates for quite some time.

It’s not all that surprising, therefore, to hear that Arsenal have made an £18m bid for the player. Although one would give it a thought for the price offered by Arsenal in this inflated transfer market especially when the likes of David Luiz has been transferred for around 48m.
