The agent of Barcelona attacker Antoine Griezmann reportedly meets with two Premier League clubs as speculation over the Frenchman's future intensifies.

The agent of Barcelona attacker Antoine Griezmann has reportedly held talks with Premier League teams amid speculation surrounding the Frenchman's next career move.

With the Blaugrana under immense pressure to offload some of their big earners in the current transfer window, Griezmann is understood to be one of several established names on the chopping block.

Atletico Madrid have been strongly linked with a swoop for their former attacker as part of a swap deal which would see Saul Niguez head in the opposite direction, but there is not believed to be any agreement over such a proposal.

Chelsea have been tipped to bring in Griezmann on loan if they cannot strike a deal for Erling Braut Haaland, and according to 90Min, the 30-year-old's agent has been in contact with two English clubs.

The report adds that Manchester City, Liverpool, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have all registered their interest, but Atletico still remain at the head of the queue.

Barcelona are supposedly reluctant to let Griezmann join a direct La Liga rival after Luis Suarez propelled Atletico to the league title last term, but the Blaugrana may be forced to accept such a proposal if it means raising enough funds to keep Lionel Messi at the club.

Griezmann has largely struggled to become a consistent goalscoring threat for Barcelona, but he amassed an impressive tally of 20 goals and 13 assists from 51 games in all competitions last term.
