Chelsea could reportedly be about to try a bid of around £88million to seal the transfer of Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann to replace Eden Hazard.
France international has been struggling internationally since joining Atletico Madrid to Barcelona and Don says his future in the song is in doubt.
The report goes on to say Chelsea are showing the strongest interest in Griezmann and could be prepared to offer around £88m to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
The 28-year-old is aggressive in what he does?
The 28-year-old is a world-class attacking player on his day and could no doubt replace Hazard, who left for Real Madrid this summer with CFC unable to replace him due to their transfer ban.
It remains to be seen if Griezmann would really leave Barca so soon after joining, but Don Balon suggests this deal probably wouldn’t happen until the end of the season.
They must improve conditions for next season
The Blues would definitely do well to strengthen their squad with this proven talent after relying so much on young players like Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Christian Pulisic this season.
Frank Lampard will surely have to improve the club’s situation, however, as they don’t currently look guaranteed to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
It’s hard to imagine Griezmann would be ready to join Chelsea without competing in Europe’s top club competition.
