Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s long list of failed attempts to sign big names might just get a little bit longer as according to reports in Squawka, the Gunners were involved in a sensational chase for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

The website claimed that the Gunners were prepared to spend more than £60 million to sign the Atletico Madrid forward but the transfer now seems almost impossible after Chelsea striker Diego Costa decided to remain at Stamford Bridge. The North London club were hoping that an agreement for Griezmann would be possible if Diego Costa returned to Atletico Madrid this summer, which in turn would have seen the striker replaced by Everton forward Romelu Lukaku at Stamford Bridge. However, all the strikers have remained where they were and the Arsenal fans will have to deal with another transfer disappointment.

The Gunners have been looking to strengthen their attacking options with a top striker on their wishlist and they have already failed in their pursuit of Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette, with a £29 million offer turned down.

Pressure has been mounting on the Gunners boss after his side failed to register a victory in the first two games of the season and the pressure will only increase as the club has still not signed any player they were linked too,most notably Shkodran Mustafi.

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
