Griezmann

Premier League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal are involved in a battle to French international Antoine Griezmann, according to reports from the Daily Star

Understandably, Atletico Madrid are not keen on losing the services of Griezmann anytime soon but there is real concern that the 25-year-old could be looking to leave the Vicente Calderon following the news that manager Diego Simeone is set to be planning to exit the club soon.

Griezmann wanted by Premier League duo

Given his apparent availability, a number of teams are closely monitoring the situation and now according to reports from the Daily Star, claims can be made that the Premier League duo of Chelsea and Arsenal are currently involved in a battle to sign the former Real Sociedad star.

The report claims that although Griezmann has a contract at Atletico till 2021, Chelsea and Arsenal are planning to use their financial muscle in order to sign the superstar next summer.

In addition to Chelsea and Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City have also been mentioned as the other two interested parties who will look to join the race.
