France international Antoine Griezmann has announced he will be staying with Atletico Madrid next season.

The highly-rated forward has thus put Barcelona links to bed and forced the Catalan giants to look elsewhere this summer.

According to the reports coming from Sport, the La Liga champions will now set their sights on the Tottenham Hotspur talisman Christian Eriksen as Antoine Griezmann alternative.

Barcelona are on the lookout for a high-profile Andres Iniesta replacement and it is believed that the Danish international fits the bill perfectly.

Griezmann’s versatility and ability to perform in a number of roles upfield will be hard to match but the Catalans hope Eriksen’s commanding presence in the centre of the park could benefit the frontline – especially Ousmane Dembele who struggled to gain footing in first season at the club.

It is believed that Barcelona could use Rafinha as a bargaining chip to persuade Tottenham to sell their prized asset this summer.
