Chelsea will drive Premier League push to win Griezmann race

Chelsea will fly the Premier League flag in the race for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

L'Equipe says the time will soon come when Griezmann will move to one of the biggest clubs on the planet.

Speculation over his future recently went into overdrive after the player dropped his agent to handle any transfer and contract negotiations himself.

That, coupled with the news that Atletico boss Diego Simeone had negotiated a contract reduction, means a transfer could be on the cards next summer.

The Daily Express says Chelsea are willing to fork out a world-record fee to bring Griezmann to Stamford Bridge.

And journalists in France have also thrown Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus into the mix.
