Arsenal & Manchester United target Griezmann denies PSG rumours

Published Add your comment

Antoine Griezmann has denied rumours that he visited Paris Saint-Germain's training ground ahead of a big money move.

The diminutive forward has been in electric form for the La Liga side this season, currently sitting third in the goalscoring charts behind Diego Costa and Cristiano Ronaldo after scoring 12 goals in 16 starts.

Griezmann's form has caught the attention of a number of European clubs with Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham all rumoured to be interested.

Arsenal were reported to have bid £12m for the 22-year-old last week and, after it was rejected, were believed to be readying a second.

Arsene Wenger is on the lookout for a forward to replace the injured Theo Walcott but Sociedad's £25m asking price seemingly put the Gunners off.

Wenger and David Moyes seemed to have missed out on his signature after it was reported that Griezmann had visited Paris Saint-Germain's training ground last week.

But Griezmann denies those reports, alerting officials at the Emirates and Old Trafford that the player may still available.

However, Griezmann reiterated his desire to remain at Real Sociedad until the end of the season at least.

Speaking to RMC, the player said: "Maybe I have a double that pretends to be me. No, I was sat quietly at home.

"I want to finish the season with my club. I do not want to start thinking about the transfer market.

"The rest, we'll see in time. I have not been contacted by clubs. I think I was pretty clear in the press conference by saying that I did not want to leave my club this winter."
