Arsenal have been handed a massive transfer blow in their quest to land the Euros Championship most valuable player Antoine Griezmann, this follows from the revelation of the player’s agent.
Earlier this week, reports emerged according to Italian Sport journalist Emmanuele Gialianelli that Arsenal were interested in signing the player as Wenger looks to reinforce his attacking line ahead of the coming season.
Bar the acquisition of Granit Xhaka, Wenger is yet to splash cash on another signing despite his claim that he is looking to bolster his attack.
The agent of Antoine Griezmann Eric Olhats revealed to France Football that Griezmann will remain at the Vicente Calderon.
“Antoine extended his contract with pleasure,” Eric Olhats said. “At no point was this club a back-up plan.
“Teams from abroad did however call on him during the close season. In England, there were several direct expressions of interest, but a lot of clubs are under reconstruction.
“There were also meetings with Paris Saint-Germain. The project was very attractive, but he’s just become a father, he feels good in Spain and Atletico is, I repeat, a great club that gives him everything he expects and which is managed by a great coach.”
Although, we cannot confirm the veracity of this report, Arsenal have no chance in the signing the player. The player is valued at 85million Pounds. The Wenger we know will not sign Griezmann for an amount close to his valuation.
