Griezmann has long been linked with a move away from the Spanish capital and was wanted by Manchester United last summer.

The France international recently penned a one-year contract extension with Atletico but now appears to be in the sights of Barcelona.

The Catalans lost Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain but failed to secure a marquee replacement, despite spending £135m on young Borussia Dortmund winger Ousmane Dembele.

And it now seems Griezmann is the man at the top of Barca’s shopping list, despite a number of other stars being tipped to make the move instead.

Rival reports claim Tottenham playmaker Dele Alli is actually the pick of the bunch.

While Man Utd bench-warmer Anthony Martial has been backed in some quarters to up sticks for a Spanish switch.

But there is still said to be interest in Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho, who tried and failed to force through a move to Barcelona in the last transfer window.
