Respected journalist Kike Marin has tipped Chelsea to sign Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.
The forward only joined the Rojiblancos last summer from Real Sociedad, but has been a big success since arriving at the Vicente Calderon. The France international has 22 goals in 35 La Liga appearances, helping Atleti in to third place in the division and the quarter finals of the Champions League.
This seems to have attracted the interest of the Blues, who may want the 24-year-old to play on the right side of their midfield. Griezmann may be able to bring the same threat on that side as Eden Hazard already does on the other for the Stamford Bridge outfit. The Belgian has recently been named the Player of the Year, so were Chelsea to add similar quality to the other wing it could make them unstoppable.
However, the player will be pricey having only moved to Madrid recently, and the Metro believes his release clause to be around £43 million. This latest hint could be a sign that the wide man is going to move to London in the summer.
@DW_9 I think Chelsea, mate!
