Tottenham Hotspur could meet all expectations to sign Antoine Griezmann, but Nuno’s side are facing competition from Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, according to ABC.
What’s the story?
ABC are reporting that Barcelona are willing to sell Griezmann in the summer transfer window.
Tottenham have been named as the club who could ‘meet all expectations’.
Because Tottenham could sell Harry Kane to Manchester City.
That would mean that Spurs would have a lot of cash which they would be able to invest.
If Kane leaves, then Tottenham will need a new striker.
Griezmann, who won the 2018 World Cup with France, could just replace Kane in Nuno’s team.
However, there is also the threat from Chelsea.
The 2021 Champions League winners have reportedly put Timo Werner on the transfer market.
Olivier Giroud has also left Chelsea.
This means that Tuchel’s side will need to sign a new striker this summer.
Tottenham Hotspur or Chelsea?
Chelsea won the Champions League last season and will be competing for the Premier League title in 2021-22.
Griezmann, who scored 13 goals and gave seven assists in La Liga last season, could be tempted by a move to Chelsea over Spurs.
The former Atletico Madrid star is 30 now, and he will surely want to be part of a team who are already winning trophies.
Tottenham are in a rebuilding phase now.
