Barcelona opinion: Should the Catalans consider signing Griezmann?
Now, the transfer saga has taken another twist as the Blaugrana have reportedly rekindled their interest. Barcelona will feel the need for reinforcements after the events of last week.
Barca need to bolster their attack
Ernesto Valverde’s men still seem to have not recovered from their humiliating defeat against Liverpool at Anfield.
Despite the 3-0 aggregate lead, the Blaugrana couldn’t hold their nerves as the team from Merseyside produced a dramatic 4-0 turnaround, which eventually saw them going into the finals.
Coutinho, who was bought from the Reds on a massive deal last season, failed to live up to his expectations, while Dembele struggled to find his form due to recurring injury woes.
There’s been a massive drop in the scoring rate of Suarez compared to previous season, which clearly indicates his rustiness.

Should Barca go for Griezmann?
The Frenchman has been really pivotal for Diego Simeone’s side to finish second in the La Liga table.
The World Cup winner’s 31-goal tally further highlights his current run of form and the Catalans can benefit a lot from him. Griezmann is synonymous with several positions, which will ease the pressure on any side that he plays for.
Griezmann holds a release clause of £100 million (h/t Le Parisien), which is quite a reasonable one for a player of his standards. The Blaugrana shouldn’t hesitate to sign the former Real Sociedad player.
