Transfer News

Arsenal have decided to go toe to toe with Manchester United over the signature of Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann, according to reports.

The Frenchman has been heavily linked with a big-money switch to Jose Mourinho's side in recent weeks, with the reported summer deal expected to rival the world-record fee United paid for Paul Pogba last year.

According to the Daily Mail, however, a Gunners offer for Griezmann was rebuffed by Atletico last summer due to him signing a new contract, but they are eager to try again for the 25-year-old at the end of the season in a bid to pair him up with Alexis Sanchez up front.

Griezmann was recently voted the third best player in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
