Arsene Wenger has not had the best of the summers as he has not been able to lay his hands on the top transfer targets throughout the first month of the window.
The manager is desperate for striking option to add to Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck in the squad and has been linked with a move for a number of star European forwards in the few last week.
The likes of Jamie Vardy, Gonzalo Higuain, Mauro Icardi and Alexandre Lacazette were all scouted by the Gunners but none of them are any closer to a move to the Emirates this summer.
This has now given rise to ridiculous rumors linking Arsenal to yet another French star.
The Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is now going all out for a striker and has now reportedly made Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann as his next transfer target according to reports.
The 25-year old attacker was one of the best players last season and he continued his form in EUROs where he scored 6 goals and was easily the best player on show in the tournament in France.
He is a player with great attributes that will attract even the best of the teams and it is understood that Arsene Wenger is making a move for him this summer.
The Spanish club are understandably not ready to let go of their star player but it is revealed that Arsenal are ready to trigger his release clause in the coming days.
It is also revealed that Griezmann has a release clause at around €100m which is far more than what Arsenal are reluctant top pay for Icardi and Lacazette, their other transfer targets.
Griezmann will be a great asset for Arsenal next season as he will add goal-scoring prowess along with a lot of creativity and confidence to the squad which can help them to reach the top of the Premier League table next season.
But they will have to work really hard to get their hands on arguably the most in-form forward in Europe at the moment.
Do you think Antoine Griezmann will move to Arsenal this summer?
