With Arsenal having endured two consecutive defeats in the Premier League, dropping to nine points behind leaders Chelsea, Gooners would probably give an arm and a leg to have a player like Antoine Griezmann at their club.
The French superstar is one of the finest footballers in the world right now and it appears that Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny has tried hard to convince the striker to switch the Spanish capital for North London.

Koscielny, a French compatriot of Griezmann’s and captain of the Gunners, has been speaking to the striker and may have been trying to push the forward into a move. Unfortunately, Griezmann is content in his current surroundings.
Should Arsenal somehow manage to pull off a move for Griezmann, the Gunners would likely have to smash their own transfer record and would have to fend off rival interest from a host of other top sides within the European game.
