Tottenham: possible escape route for Antoine Griezmann

Spurs are yet to make an offer for the French forward, but they are monitoring his situation closely

Joan Laporta has confirmed that he would let Antoine Griezmann leave Camp Nou if the club receives a good offer for him this summer. The player's preferred option is to return to Atlético de Madrid. Los Colchoneros have not ruled out a move, but they are aware that it would be a difficult operation to carry out - particularly given the reaction of the club's fans to the player's return, given the way in which he joined Barça a few seasons ago.

According to a report in the Daily Star, Tottenham are keeping an eye on Griezmann's situation. The Premier League could prove to be an ideal escape route for both club and player, with Barça keen to get the player's wages off their books. However, the player's entourage were quoted in L'Équipe as saying "Antoine isn't willing to join any team at random just because Barça finds itself in a tricky situation".

Spurs are understood to be in the market for a striker, given the likely departure of their talismanic striker Harry Kane to Manchester City. Reports in England suggest that the player will join the Cityzens for around 180 million euros, which Spurs could then spend on a much-needed squad rebuild.

Por ahora, los de Londres no han presentado una oferta formal, pero siguen de cerca la situación del futbolista. Según las informaciones, el Barça les habría "ofrecido" al delantero, pero los 'spurs' esperan a hacer un movimiento según como avancen las cosas.

The North London club are yet to make an official bid for Griezmann, but they are keeping tabs on the situation. Some reports have claimed that Barça have offered the player to Nuno Espíritu Santo's side, but Spurs are waiting to see what happens in the market before they make a move.
