It’s believed Griezmann, who has scored 13 goals in 26 appearances in all competitions so far this season, has a £86 million release clause in his current Atletico contract and money would be made available to the likes of Arsenal and United to make a move for his services this summer.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Merson said:
“They pay top dollar those Arsenal fans.
“When you’re paying that kind of money you have to be watching world class footballers at the club.
“You can’t just have two – you should have five and six in my opinion.
“With Griezmann, people go ‘they’ve [Arsenal] got that kind of player’. They haven’t. They’ve got two of them but you could do with another one.”
No one would deny Griezmann’s ability and if he is to leave Atletico Madrid at the end of the season, then Arsenal would be stupid not to register their interest in him as he would be a dynamic signing for the club.
