Antoine Griezmann would help improve Barcelona, according to Ousmane Dembele, who labeled the proposed move as “exceptional”.
He has been heavily linked with LaLiga champions Barcelona amid his reported €100million release clause. The 27-year-old France international, who helped Atletico to Europa League glory this season, revealed he will decide his future before the World Cup in Russia.
Barca winger and international team-mate Dembele said he is excited by Griezmann’s potential arrival.
“We haven’t talked much about this [transfer] with Antoine,” Dembele said. “If Antoine comes to Barca, it would be something exceptional. He’s a great player, a great striker, I think he’ll help us be better.”
Griezmann – gearing up for the World Cup where France will meet Australia, Peru, and Denmark in Group C – scored 29 goals for Atletico in 2017-18.
