Arsenal and Manchester United are both reportedly weighing up moves for Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.

The Catalan giants are allegedly open to selling Frenchman before the start of the 2020-21 season as they look to raise the funds in order to lure Lautaro Martinez at Old Trafford, while they also consider re-signing of Neymar.

According to Sport, Barcelona would entertain offers of €100m (£92.4m) for French forward, having been underwhelmed by his form since arriving from Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid earlier last summer.

The report suggests that both Arsenal and Manchester United could now move for the 29-year-old forward, who has managed to found back of the net 14 times in 37 games for Barca during the 2019-20 campaign.

The attacker has a record of eight goals and four assists in 26 La Liga appearences this season, while he has struck twice in seven Champions League games since joining the Catalan club.

Griezmann’s existing deal with Quique Setien’s team that will run until the summer of 2024 and both Arsenal and Man Utd have to splash the money in order to lure him away from Old Trafford.
