If Arsenal must improve their chances of winning the Premier League that has eluded them for several seasons, then a marquee signing can help accomplish that.
According to report, Arsene Wenger has turned his attention to French star Antoine Griezmann over a potential transfer…
Wenger has been a big admirer of Griezmann and he had approach the prolific French stalwart over a deal in the summer but it failed because the player claimed he was happy…
However, it has now been suggested that Griezmann could be more open to leave Atletico after their slump in form this season, with Diego Simeone’s side dropping as low as 6th in La Liga.
Arsenal are not the only club in the chase of the player. Manchester United are also interested but Wenger has the advantage as the player is his compatriot.
Wenger is keen to add a world class forward to his ranks and is also looking at Andrea belotti as a more realistic alternative, according to The Sun.
Still, the Italian is another player who may not come cheap, meaning Arsenal continue to monitor Griezmann’s situation at the Vicente Calderon.
Arsenal fans will be relieved to see their club showing ambition in the transfer market, particularly with the risk of star striker Alexis Sanchez leaving the club amid his ongoing row over a new contract.
