Arsenal and Chelsea ready for colossal £83m battle for lethal forward despite Euro giants deal

With England continuing to cause embarrassment wherever they go, the punters in the Transfer Tavern are focusing firmly on the transfer market in an attempt to forget all about it. 

As they drown their sorrows, the Manchester United and Chelsea fans have at least been given something to cheer about, following reports emanating out of Spain.

According to El Confidencialthe Premier League pair are STILL weighing up an attempt to sign France’s Euro 2016 hero Antoine Griezmann this summer.

The Atletico Madrid forward recently penned a new deal in the Spanish capital, though his release clause was bumped up by ‘just’ €20m.

Now, he would be available for €100m, which equates to roughly £83m.

His exploits for Les Blues during the Euros is believed to have forced both the Red Devils and the Blues to keep a keen eye over his situation at the Vicente Calderon.

Moves to England have been mooted for the former Real Sociedad man for a while now as he matures into one of the most potent attackers on the continent.

Can Griezmann close the gap on the likes of Messi and Ronaldo?
