Arsenal could find it difficult to sign Antoinne Greizmann next summer, recent reports suggest.
The Gunners were interested in signing the striker during the just concluded summer transfer window but the player wanted to remain at Atletico Madrid.
Wenger was prepared to spend up to £70m on the striker and was hopeful of completing a deal but his hopes were dashed when the player signed a new deal with the Spanish giants.
Some reports claim Wenger could try again at the end of the season but other reports suggests he would face serious competition for the striker’s signature.
Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly monitoring the striker’s situation and could make their moves next summer.
According to the Express, Chelsea are interested in the French man and Antonio Conte has asked his club to table a world record bid to sign the striker.
Greizmann has a release clause of £86m in his contract but Chelsea are willing to go beyond the £89m Manchester United paid for Pogba in the just concluded summer transfer window.
Chelsea’s willingness to smash the world transfer record in order to sign Greizmann could make it difficult for us to sign the French forward. It is unlikely Arsenal would sanction a £90m bid to sign the striker when his release clause is a bit lower.
