Missed opportunity! Former Liverpool and Gunners target scores La Liga hat-trick

Antoine Griezmann was one of Liverpool’s and Arsenal’s top transfer targets last summer, but after the World Cup the then Real Sociedad star decided to stay in Spain and play for Atletico Madrid instead.

The Frenchman netted 16 league goals the previous season and while many believe it would be hard to replicate his form, Griezmann didn’t have much trouble and finally showed his true class with an amazing hat-trick after going a goal down against Athletic Bilbao last night.

With Liverpool currently struggling for a consistent goalscorer, one can only imagine how the Reds would be faring if they had spent some of the £100million on Griezmann rather than overpaying for the likes of Lazar Markovic (£20m) and Adam Lallana (£25m).
