Arsenal transfer news and rumours live: Julian Draxler offer, Griezmann reaction, Aouar talks

Griezmann responds to links

Antoine Griezmann has played down speculation linking him with a move away from Barcelona.

The French star, who joined the Catalan club in a big-money move from Atletico Madrid last summer, has struggled to make a major impact at the Nou Camp.

It has led to reports from the Daily Mail that Arsenal are among the clubs that are on red-alert and monitoring his situation with a view to a move.

But Griezmann insists his future lies at Barcelona.

Asked in an interview by M6 if his future lies at the Nou Camp, he replied (via Marca ): “Yes.

“I don’t know why people are making up other destinations.

“I’m happy at Barcelona and I know I have the confidence of the club and of the coach.

“So, I’m good. Last season was a tough season for everyone and now we’re ready to start again.”
