Edmilson: No room for Griezmann at Barcelona

Former Barcelona defender Edmilson has called on his old club to ignore Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann.

Edmilson insists there's "no room" for the France attacker.

He told AS: "I do not know if Neymar is going to come but I would not sign Griezmann. There is no room for Griezmann.

"I think that for Atletico Madrid he plays the (Lionel) Messi role. And if (Ousmane) Dembélé plays as left winger, Messi and (Luis) Suarez, perhaps we may need another nine for when Suarez cannot play 60 games. That would be a good nine and a good signing.

"I have nothing against Griezmann. He is a good player, but I do not see him. I think he's not the piece that Barça needs."
