While he has not matched his performances with trophies, Griezmann notably helped Atletico to the Champions League final in 2016 as well as helping France reach the finals of Euro 2016 where his stock rose even further after a starring role for Les Bleus.

Suarez has suggested that the 27-year-old forward, would be making a move to Camp Nou this summer.

Barcelona always bring quality players like Antoine such as Coutinho and Dembele, they are footballers with a lot of quality, he has been playing at a high level for a lot of years. "He rules up front for Atletico and that is fundamental", Suarez said.

The 27-year-old Griezmann has increasingly been linked with a move away from the Madrid team, which he is now playing for, with Manchester United reportedly agreeing to personal terms of the footballer's transfer to Old Trafford. "He is not coming to take the place of anyone but with the ambition of winning important things".

Speaking on Uruguayan radio station, Radio Rincon, Suarez was asked about possible signings for this season's La Liga champions and responded as if a deal had already been agreed for the French worldwide, reports Xinhua news agency. "He will be welcomed".

Simeone learned on Friday that he will be banned from the touchline in the Europa League final in Lyon against Marseille after being dismissed during the first leg of the semi-final win over Arsenal.

That's why Valverde and company have targeted both Paulo Dybala and Antoine Griezmann as their top targets next summer, with the Frenchman leading the list.
