Antoine Griezmann Atletico Madrid

Craig Burley thinks Antoine Griezmann would be a brilliant signing for Liverpool and equally the player would benefit from a move to Anfield.

Atletico Madrid announced on Tuesday evening that the forward would be leaving this summer after five years, with most media outlets reporting that he will complete a £104million move to Barcelona.

However, Burley reckons Liverpool should make a move for Griezmann as their front three of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane make them an attractive proposition.

“I actually think that Liverpool would be a great place for Griezmann to go this summer,” Burley told ESPN.

“Liverpool are very much a team on the up at the moment and he could aid Roberto Firmino who also likes to drop deep.

“Liverpool are a huge club who are fighting for league titles with Manchester City and have reached the last two Champions League finals.

“I don’t know if they have got enough money to do it but I wouldn’t go to Manchester United, that’s for sure.

“You talk about how good Griezmann would be linking up with Messi and Barcelona, what about with Liverpool’s front three?

“You look at that and we talk about Liverpool needing that strength in depth, he would add that and Firmino or Salah some games might sit out.”
