Juventus are interested in signing Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann, who is currently on loan at Atletico Madrid, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Griezmann is in the second season of his two-year loan spell with Atleti and there is speculation over the player’s future.

Diego Simeone’s side are forced to make the French striker’s stay permanent for €40m if he plays more than 50% of the matches he is available for.

However, Atleti are keeping their appearances low as they oppose the call option being an obligation.

This has seen Juventus interested in Griezmann if the Frenchman is available as a free agent next summer.

Juve have had a disappointing start to the season with question marks over coach Massimiliano Allegri’s future.

The Old Lady sit eighth in Serie A with 10 points, having scored nine goals.

The Serie A giants used the free agency route last summer to bring Angel di Maria and Paul Pogba to the Allianz Stadium.

They may be eyeing Barcelona’s Griezmann as their next free signing.

Griezmann has made eight appearances this season, scoring three goals and contributing one assist.

Griezmann doesn’t want to return to Barcelona

Griezmann wasn’t at his best for Barca

Griezmann told Transfermarkt he hopes to stay at Atleti for as long as possible and seems keen not to return to Barcelona.

He said (via AS):

“I hope Atleti want me as long as I can keep up with the pace of the games and the level requested, and that we can write another great story.”

Griezmann joined Barcelona from Atletico in 2019 for £108million, making him the fourth most expensive signing in history.

The Frenchman had a disappointing spell at Camp Nou, making 102 appearances, scoring 35 goals and providing 17 assists.

He won the Copa del Rey with Barca in 2021, but it was a transfer that never lived up to expectations.

Griezmann seems happy to be back at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

However, the current loan deal between Atleti and Barca saw him get around 30 minutes of action in his second season.

A move to Juve may be a tempting proposition for Griezmann, who may feel he can help one of Europe’s giants recover.

The French striker will probably be part of The BluesThe 2022 FIFA World Cup squad and could improve their chances of securing a permanent transfer next summer at the tournament.
