Arsenal to snub deal for Fellaini

Arsenal to snub deal for Fellaini

Griezmann would be able to fill a number of different roles for Barcelona, as he's operated at the point of the attack, as a support striker and occasionally in advanced wide positions for Atletico.

Arsenal have emerged as shock contenders to sign Marouane Fellaini this summer.

"Whether Griezmann comes or not is up to the coach, it is still not 100%, but obviously the more quality we have, the better".

Griezmann has scored 112 goals in 209 appearances for Atletico since his €30m arrival in 2014.

But Messi is keen to play alongside the 27-year-old at Camp Nou.

The Egyptian global found the back of the net a record 44 times for Liverpool last season, nearly singlehandedly powering them to a top-four finish in the Premier League as well as an appearance in the final of the UEFA Champions League. Specifically, Manchester United lack a player who could operate naturally on the right flank, which is where Griezmann could possible be coming in. Emery's moves to sign the Dortmund and Manchester United players could be his first victory over Jose Mourinho with the Greek defender linked with Mourinho's side recently.

Messi's immediate concern is playing in his fourth World Cup but he has made it clear that he wants Barcelona to build on last season's achievements when they won La Liga by 14 points but fell short in the Champions League.

Messi, who is preparing for Argentina's opening World Cup game against Iceland on June 16, also believes that Griezmann would be an ideal signing. But, there are a few complications in Barcelona's pursuit of the French worldwide, which seems to have put the ball in Manchester United's court.
