Liverpool have reportedly turned down the opportunity to seal the transfer of Barcelona forward Antoine Griezmann.
Spanish outlet Don balon They claim that Barca offered the Reds a possible deal for Griezmann, but that Jurgen Klopp is apparently not interested in landing the French international at the moment.
Whether an opportunity like this will emerge again remains to be seen, but a new signing up front makes no sense as an urgent priority for Liverpool anyway.
The Premier League champions already have the excellent trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino at the helm, while Diogo Jota is another strong option after his quick start to life since moving to Anfield from the Wolves in summer.
Griezmann has not been at his best at the Camp Nou either, sporting a shadow of the player that was a pleasure to see during his time at Atlético de Madrid.
Many Liverpool fans probably wouldn’t be sold on this move, even if it’s always tempting to move for a big name like this when they become available.
