Antoine Griezmann has been one player who has constantly been on the radar of almost every top club in Europe. Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and now Arsenal have entered the race for the young Frenchman. The best thing about Griezmann could be that Arsenal won’t lack a creative and a goal scoring force upfront as he can play as a wide forward and center forward.
Metro have again reported the speculation which has gained pace that Arsenal are monitoring his situation really closely and the fact that Arsene Wenger is a Frenchman himself gives Arsenal an edge over the other teams coupled with the fact that Arsene is well known for providing a development platform to the young potential footballers.
The newspaper claims that Arsenal are confident Sociedad are ready to sell this summer but with the 23-year-old’s buy-out clause set at nearer €30m, we might have to dig a little deeper if we want to make him our first summer signing.
Arsenal will also have to battle with Juventus – who are also reportedly interested – but the player is believed to favour a switch to England, which will obviously go in our favour.
