Ex-Gunner Robert Pires has urged Arsenal to make a move for Atletico Madrid striker Antoinne Greizmann.
The French striker is being linked with a move to the Premier League and Manchester United are reportedly the favorites for his signature. Reports claim Jose Mourinho already has an agreement in place with the striker’s representative to lure him to Old Trafford in the summer but Pires reckons that Arsenal should move for the French man.
Pires believes a move to the Emirates will be better for Greizmann as our coaches can help him enhance his game.
“This is only speculation about Antoine Griezmann and Manchester United. Why not see Griezmann at Arsenal?, Pires said, when asked about the Atletico striker.
“He has a good profile to play with this team. I think he could learn a lot with [Arsene] Wenger, with [Mesut] Ozil, Alexis [Sanchez], [Santi] Cazorla. Fingers crossed.”
Greizmann will definitely be a great addition to our squad but the question is if we can pull this one off.
Arsenal have reportedly made signing a world class striker this summer it’s priority and Greizmann definitely fits the bill. However, the French man is expected to cost around a €100m and I don’t think we will want to pay that much. Should Arsenal go against the norm to secure Greizmann’s services, his arrival will mean the addition of another world class player to our squad which will go a long way to convince Sanchez and Ozil to stay and also boost our chances of challenging for titles in subsequent years.
