Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti claims that it would be "fantastic" if Antoine Griezmann joined the club from Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has claimed that it would be "fantastic" if Antoine Griezmann joined the club from Atletico Madrid.

Griezmann has been linked with a move to the Spanish champions in recent months, although the most recent reports suggest that the striker will turn down a move to La Liga.

Fellow France international Umtiti has said that he is good friends with Griezmann, although the pair have never discussed their futures.

"I talk a lot with Griezmann but not about this topic. We talk about PlayStation, food, everything, but not about this," the centre-back told a press conference.

"He is a great player and could help any team in the world. If he wants to come here, it would be fantastic."

Griezmann scored 29 goals this season, including a brace in Atletico's 3-0 Europa League final win over Marseille.
