Metro have Arsenal fans sitting up and taking note here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they claim that the club could well be closing in on the signing of Real Sociedad’s Antoine Griezmann.
As our landlord points out, the Gunners look like missing out on Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria, and have switched their attentions elsewhere in La Liga.
Clearly netting a forward this winter is a massive objective for the Gunners, but to get some more pace and diversity on the wings is something they could well do with.
As we all know, Arsenal are flying high, and despite a set back with the Champions League this week, one of our punters puts down his knife and fork to note that they still have more to cheer about than they have had in a long time. A trophy might even be on the horizon!
If Arsene Wenger wants to land Griezmann, he will have to stump up a significant amount of cash, with the French star reportedly worth around £20 million. Sources close to Spanish publication Marca note that Real Sociedad will try their best to keep the attacker.
The club source claimed: “We want to keep him for as long as possible. But we have a battle to convince him to stay – we know clubs are interested in him.”
Do you think Griezmann is worth signing for as much as £20 million? Let us know your thoughts below.
