There are not many footballers out there at the moment that are better than Antoine Griezmann. The Frenchman is hands down the best player at the European Championship at the moment. Well, he could be playing for Arsenal next season if reports in the Spanish press are anything to go by. According to a report by Marca, who are quite reliable when it comes to Madrid based players, Arsenal’s majority shareholder Stan Kroneke is ready to give Wenger the go ahead to sign the Atletico Madrid attacker in a deal that will be close to the world record deal.
Griezmann only recently signed a contract with Atletico Madrid and is said to have a release clause of €100 million and ordinarilly you would think that is beyond Arsenal but reports claim Stan Kroneke is finally ready to make a statement of intent after much criticism from both the press and the Arsenal fans.
Signing Griezmann will be a masterstroke for Arsenal. It will not only finally get the fans on the side of the manager once again but also make Arsenal favorites for the Premier League title next season. The versatility of the Frenchamn will be useful to Arsenal in many ways especially with Wenger and his team of deal makers still not able to find a striker.
Signing Griezmann for €100 million will be very unWenger like but signing Mesut Ozil five years ago for 42.5 million was also very unWenger like.
