Report: Tottenham Hotspur target Atletico Madrid superstar Antoine Griezmann

According to the Spanish news outlet Fichajes (h/t The Sun), Tottenham Hotspur have identified Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann as a transfer target for this year. Technically, he is on loan at Wanda Metropolitano from Barcelona for this season.

Atletico has the option to extend Griezmann’s current loan deal for another year while also possessing the obligatory clause to buy him permanently for £34million. Tottenham are interested in getting him as Antonio Conte is a keen admirer of the 2018 World Cup winner.

A transfer could be on the cards this year and the 30-year-old could be convinced to move to the Premier League. A world-class player, Spurs could land him for less than £40million.

Griezmann to Spurs?

If Fabio Paratici pulls this off, then this would be one big statement to our competitors about our ambitions moving forward. The Frenchman still plays at a top level and could prove to be an astute addition to the Spurs squad.

Despite Atletico’s struggles this season, the La Liga star has scored seven goals with three assists from 21 matches across all competitions this season.

The France attacker has looked much better than how his days played out with the Blaugrana club. He has continued to perform well with his national team, which indicates that he could still play at his best in a competent system.

Looking at our attacking options, it is clear that we need some additions to help us boost our chances of competing for silverware. The Atleti forward would be a statement signing and would lift the quality of our frontline.

That’s not all, as the French striker’s flexibility would also offer the Spurs boss the option to tweak the formation as he prefers. We have already seen 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 systems being utilised, and he would suit us in both cases. It remains to be seen how the situation pans out and whether the complexity of his current contract would hamper our interest or not.
