Arsenal Eye Move For Real Sociedad’s winger Griezmann in January
Arsenal are looking closely at Real Sociedad winger, Antoine Griezmann; with the Gunners looking to put in a January bid for the Frenchman.
The French newspaper Le 10 sport reports that Arsene Wenger, having already invested heavily on Mesut Ozil, is now looking to further bolster his attacking line-up with a move for the 22-year-old.
Although a striker remains the priority for the Gunners, Wenger could make a move for a player he has been following for over two years to flank Olivier Giroud.
The predominantly left sided attacker is also being monitored by Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich; with the Spanish coach impressed with Griezmann’s contribution to a fantastic run late last year for Sociedad, and 8 goals in 12 games so far this term.
The Spanish club seem confident however of keeping their man; with Sociedad manager, Jagoba Arrasate, envisioning a long stay for the winger,
“We’re hopeful that we can enjoy having him for a long time at Real Sociedad,” Arrasate said last week,
“Up until June for sure, but hopefully beyond that too.”
With both Bayern and Arsenal already heavily loaded with attacking midfielders, a move to a different side may be a more likely scenario for the talented Frenchman at the end of the season.
