In a news that will surely shock the world, reports today are claiming Arsenal majority shareholder Stan Kroneke is currently in England to hold talks with Wenger and other Arsenal deal makers as the club prepare to launch a sensational unexpected big money bid for Antoine Griezmann of Atletico Madrid.
Griezmann has been one of the best players in the world in the last few years, at the European Championship which ends today, he has hands down been the best player. But unbelievably, the player is not been linked with the likes of Barca, United, Madrid and Bayern Munich as it is believed that he is too expensive.
He reportedly has a release clause of €100 million but reports claim Stan Kroneke is ready to make a statement of intent in the market and will sanction a big money move for the Frenchman. This report if true will mean Arsenal will be paying double of what is their transfer record.
The Gunners had paid £42.5 million to Real Madrid to sign Mesut Ozil and that remains a club record till date. It remains to be seen if this rumour is true or one of the many that is to be expected at this period in time.
