Chelsea in pole position to secure a deal for French sensation

Antoine GriezmannChelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are in a cheerful mood after Metro revealed the latest odds, which makes them favourites to land Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

The French international has lived up to all of the expectation surrounding him at the start of this season after his move from Real Sociedad, as he has gone on to score 22 league goals in his first season at Atleti.

This has made him the top-scoring winger out of the major European leagues, which has led to him being subject to even more rumours this summer.

Chelsea, who have been linked with Greizman ever since he was a Sociedad player, are now favourites to land him after Betfair were forced to cut their odds on the move happening from 7/4 to 4/5 on, following a recent surge of bets from punters

It was previously discussed in the Tavern that Frenchman would wait until the Euro 2015 competition had taken place, because he didn’t want to risk his place in the national side.

But it seems as though the youngster has got over this fear, which gives Chelsea the all clear to meet his £43.5m release clause.

Chelsea fans. Are you convinced by the recent rumours or are you still a firm believer that there is a long way to go in this transfer saga? Let us know your thoughts below.
