Barcelona signing this £100m world champion would surely win them the Champions League next season – agreed?

Barcelona opinion: Should the Catalans consider signing Griezmann?

According to a report from Le Parisien, Barcelona are edging closer to signing their long-time target Antoine Griezmann. The Frenchman and the Catalans snuffed it out last season.

Now, the transfer saga has taken another twist as the Blaugrana have reportedly rekindled their interest. Barcelona will feel the need for reinforcements after the events of last week.

Barca need to bolster their attack

Ernesto Valverde’s men still seem to have not recovered from their humiliating defeat against Liverpool at Anfield.

Despite the 3-0 aggregate lead, the Blaugrana couldn’t hold their nerves as the team from Merseyside produced a dramatic 4-0 turnaround, which eventually saw them going into the finals.

Barring Lionel Messi, the other forwards; namely Phillipe Coutinho, Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele have been dormant throughout the season.

Coutinho, who was bought from the Reds on a massive deal last season, failed to live up to his expectations, while Dembele struggled to find his form due to recurring injury woes.

There’s been a massive drop in the scoring rate of Suarez compared to previous season, which clearly indicates his rustiness.

Meanwhile, the back-up options Kevin-Prince Boateng and Malcolm were also given less amount of time by Valverde

Should Barca go for Griezmann?

The Frenchman has been really pivotal for Diego Simeone’s side to finish second in the La Liga table.

The World Cup winner’s 31-goal tally further highlights his current run of form and the Catalans can benefit a lot from him. Griezmann is synonymous with several positions, which will ease the pressure on any side that he plays for.

Conclusion

Griezmann holds a release clause of £100 million (h/t Le Parisien), which is quite a reasonable one for a player of his standards. The Blaugrana shouldn’t hesitate to sign the former Real Sociedad player.
