Liverpool enter battle for La Liga ace

Liverpool have joined a host of Premier League clubs chasing Real Sociedad winger Antoine Griezmann, according to reports from Diario Vasco.

The French winger has been earning rave reviews for his performances in La Liga over the course of the past few seasons, where he has helped to transform his club from a midtable side to one that booked Champions League qualification last year.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been linked with the 23-year-old in recent months, and now it appears that Liverpool are also keen.

It’s understood that scouts from the Reds travelled to the Anoeta to watch the wide-man in action over the weekend against Granada – a game that ended 1-1.

Although Griezmann is a key man for Sociedad, the Spanish side are believed to be considering allowing him to leave after missing out on qualification for Europe’s top club competition this term.

He has a release clause of around £25m, yet Liverpool may look to snap him up at a reduced rate even though Brendan Rodgers reportedly has in excess of £60m to spend in the coming transfer window.

Griezmann has been lauded for his pace, skill and ability to score from wide positions – he has netted 16 goals this term.
