Earlier on Saturday, reports claimed Inter Milan had demanded the signing of the former Atletico hitman in return for Lautaro Martinez.
Martinez is admired by the Barcelona board, who have kept tabs on him ever since his time at Racing Club.
He’s been blockbuster for Inter Milan this season, starring as Antonio Conte’s side have mounted a challenge for Serie A glory.
And Barcelona are hoping to add him to their attack at the end of the campaign.
With Griezmann struggling for consistency this season, many supporters have urged the Catalan giants to make the swap.
