Antoine Griezmann looks set for a move to Barcelona in the summer with the Catalan club in advanced negotiations with Atletico Madrid.

The Frenchman appears to have his heart set on a move after he was denied such a privilege in the summer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are now in pole position to sign the attacker with a deal already agreed in principle.

Griezmann looked set on a move away from Madrid last summer, with Manchester United seemingly ready to snap up the 26-year-old.

However, a transfer ban meant Atletico were unable to buy a replacement and they doubled his release clause from £85million to £170m to warn off any suitors.

Barcelona had not given up on signing their man though and they are thought to have already reached an agreement for next summer.

Neither La Liga club can deny the advanced nature of the talks with Mundo Deportivo suggesting a potential five-year deal is on the horizon.

According the the report, Griezmann is excited by the possibility of lining up with the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta. 

Meanwhile, Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde is desperate to sign another world-class striker to ensure he has four to choose from.

The Catalans want to avoid a situation like this season where injury to star signing Ousmane Dembele has left them short of experienced attackers.
