Transfer round-up as Arsenal bid for Locatelli and Man Utd could sign Griezmann

Big name Premier League transfers have emerged on Tuesday which will get tongues wagging.

Antoine Griezmann is reportedly being offered to Manchester United as Barcelona try to raise funds for their five-year deal with Lionel Messi.

The Spanish giants have accrued financial difficulty in the pandemic and so need extra money to be able to keep their star forward at the club.

Griezmann is looking to be the casualty in the arrangement with many reports suggesting he was going to return to his former club Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan.

But new information arose on Tuesday that suggested the French international could be on his way to the Premier League.

Mirror Football has rounded-up all the latest transfer action so you don’t miss out on anything.

Arsenal put in bid for Locatelli

Mikel Arteta’s side have put in a £34m bid for Sassuolo and Italy star Manuel Locatelli, an Italian source has said.

Multiple clubs are interested in signing the 23-year-old after he impressed for his national side at Euro 2020.

Along with the Gunners, Juventus have reportedly made a £25m bid plus young midfielder Nicolo Fagioli.

Fagiolo’s agent Andrea D’Amico told Sky Sports Italia: “Juventus would like to sign Locatelli and Arsenal have already offered €40m.”

Man Utd offered Griezmann

Manchester United have been given an offer for France and Barcelona star Antoine Griezmann.

The original plan for Griezmann was to be switched with Atletico Madrid’s Saul Niguez on a season-long loan but it is understood that has fallen through as both parties couldn’t agree a fee.

This has led to a report by Sport suggesting Barca are now looking at Premier League clubs with United at the top of the list.

The deal will go ahead if “conditions are right” for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side but those conditions have not been made clear.

United are thought to not want to pay a huge fee after shelling out £72.9m for Jadon Sancho.
