Barcelona are looking to renew the contract of Lionel Messi, and the Catalan giants are looking to sell a host of players to trim down their massive wage bill.

One of the players that Barcelona are actively trying to sell is Antoine Griezmann.

The Frenchman joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid for a fee of 120m euros (£107.7m) in 2019, but the question mark remains whether he has been able to justify his price-tag.

The World Cup winner with France had an improved second season with the Blaugrana, registering 20 goals and 13 assists from 51 appearances in all competitions.

However, Barcelona are looking to sacrifice him to reduce their wage bill and he has reportedly been offered to four clubs, including Tottenham and Manchester City.

According to reports from L’Equipe (h/t Sport Witness), the two Premier League clubs along with Atletico Madrid and Juventus have been offered the chance to sign the 30-year-old.

There have been talks of an attempted swap deal for the France international with Atletico Madrid for Saul Niguez, but there was no real progress in those discussions.

The report claims that Griezmann is only considering a return to his former club Atletico should he leave Barcelona.

While Spurs would benefit from a player of Griezmann’s calibre, it’s highly unlikely that the north London club can afford to sign him.

Griezmann is on £345,000-per-week wages at Barcelona, and Spurs are unlikely to pay such money for him. The only possible solution could be a loan deal with a structure similar to what Spurs managed for Gareth Bale last summer.
