Paris Saint Germain are interested in signing Chelsea target Antoine Griezmann, according to L’Equipe.

It is believed that the French international is wanted by Jose Mourinho as part of his plans to build a Champions League winning side this summer.

Griezmann has been in superb form for Atletico Madrid following his £24m switch from Real Sociedad, scoring over 20 goals in all competitions last season.

Reports of Mourinho’s interest in the Frenchman surfaced earlier this month, and the Premier League champions were seemingly given the green light to make thatmove after the Spanish side looked to complete a move for Spurs winger Erik Lamela as his replacement.

Bayern Munich have also joined the race to sign the former Real Sociedad attacker and are willing to pay his £47.2m release clause, whilst Paris Saint Germain are reported to have made similar moves to sign the talented Frenchman.
