Liverpool certainly have more transfer business to conclude before the window closes. The Reds are still lacking a fourth choice centre back and cover in the final third. There have been links with just about every talented youngster and disgruntled veteran, the latest link is one of the most surprising yet. According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool could make a move for Antoine Griezmann.
La Liga icon
Antoine Griezmann is a modern day La Liga icon.
The French forward made his name at Atletico Madrid before moving to Barcelona for €120m.
All in all he has bagged 143 goals and 54 assists in 356 appearances in the Spanish top flight.
The Frenchman didn’t exactly pick the best time to move to Barcelona, he must feel like he signed up for a front row seat to the last days of Rome.
Liverpool tracking Griezmann
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool could make a move for Antoine Griezmann.
The forward is said to be one of the players facing an exit from the Camp Nou following the Messi saga concluding with the Argentine staying.
The Mail claims that Griezmann had been promised the Messi role but with the legend staying the ex-Atleti player could be sacrificed as the Dutch coach looks to trim the squad.

He has been praised for his defensive work rate, a trait Klopp values highly.
Honestly that would be wonderful. Not saying this as a French Liverpool fan. He gives all on the field, and always makes an extra effort to defend which is aligned with Klopps values. That would brilliant for LFC

Some aren’t optimistic about the move but would love to see him at Anfield.
There’s obviously absolutely no chance it would ever happen but it would be incredible having a player like Griezmann in our squad.

He would be a good addition but his wages could be a bit steep.
Griezmann is a great player and would provide competition for the front three. However, his wages will be a big issue.

And of course, the elephant in the room is the transfer fee…
Yes Liverpool, the club that can’t afford 30m for Thiago are thinking about singing Griezmann https://t.co/zxLcUGLoZF
