Antoine Griezmann will likely be one of the hottest commodities in the upcoming transfer market this summer. The French international is enjoying another great season with Atletico Madrid, but there are rumours regarding a probable exit from the Wanda Metropolitano.

FC Barcelona are believed to be ahead of the race when it comes to land the former Real Sociedad forward, but they are not alone in his pursuit. It seems Juventus have also decided to join the race for him, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Several experts believe that Juventus require a squad overhaul ahead of the upcoming and even though the current squad has names such as Paulo Dybala, Gonzalo Higuain and Mario Mandzukic on the attack, it is believed that Griezmann is their first-choice alternative to bolster their attacking third.

However, Barca remain on top of the race to acquire the French international since it is believed that the French is keen on a move to the Camp Nou as well. But would he reject Juventus without even listening to them first? After all, the Old Lady is one of the biggest teams in the world and there is no question he would become an undisputed star as soon as he steps in the Serie A in case he joins Juve.

Juventus are quite likely to complicate Barcelona’s path to acquire Griezmann, and without a doubt this is shaping up to be one of the biggest transfer stories in the upcoming summer.
