Arsenal are set to be very busy indeed when the transfer window opens, if recent speculation is anything to go by, and their latest target is reported to be Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann.
The Gunners will, however, have to fend off interest from Bayern Munich if they are hopeful of completing a deal for the youngster. At least that is according to French magazine Le10Sport.
Bayern manager Pep Guardiola, it is claimed, has a long-standing interest in Griezmann and has requested that the Bundesliga leaders explore the possibility of acquiring the player in January.
The 22-year-old has been linked with Arsenal for some time and this could become an intriguing transfer battle, if the alleged interest of both clubs progresses from conjecture to something more concrete.
Griezmann has scored eight goals and provided one assist in his 11 appearances this season, and his ability to play across the midfield makes him an attractive proposition to potential employers.
The former France under-21 international would appear to be very much an Arsene Wenger type player, not too dissimilar to a number of stars already on the books at the Emirates Stadium.
It could take a hefty sum to acquire Griezmann, however, with previous reports claiming the player has a £25 million release clause written into his contract with Real Sociedad.
