The Blues have been keeping a close eye on the France international in recent months, and reports are now suggesting that they would be willing to meet Atleti’s release clause in a bid to snap him up.
Griezmann himself has never made any secret of his desire to one day ply his trade in the Premier League at some point, and the Daily Express are now claiming that he would be interested in a move to Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
Having only joined the Champions last summer from Real Sociedad, the 24-year-old has made a strong and instant impact in his first season in the capital, chalking up 22 goals in La Liga alone so far.
