Griezmann has decided he will leave Atletico Madrid this summer and Barcelona have long been linked with the Frenchman.

He opted to remain at Atletico last summer when many reports suggested he was on the verge of moving to Barca.

But with Griezmann’s next destination still to be chosen, Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo report that Barcelona are weighing up their other options.

And it’s claimed the La Liga giants could turn their attention to Premier League stars for a No 9.

It’s believed that Manchester United star Marcus Rashford would be a target.

Barcelona reportedly like Rashford’s speed and potential, while his ability to play anywhere across the frontline is also like by the Catalans.

Arsenal star Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been linked with a move to Real Madrid but Mundo Deportivo claim Barcelona could also be in for the forward.

Like Rashford, Aubameyang can star in any role up front but Barcelona aren’t just keen on the Gabonese star from the Emirates.

They are also interested in Alexandre Lacazette and Express Sport understand that Barca are eyeing a £70million move for the Arsenal forward.

Lacazette has praised Gunners manager Unai Emery for the impact he has had since replacing Arsene Wenger last summer.

Arsenal have made it to the Europa League final where they will take on Premier League rivals Chelsea on May 29.

“That’s what the club saw him as the coach to help the team go to the next step and he did because we go to the final in his first season,” Lacazette said.

“I hope it is going to be a great final for us and we will prepare for it. It is really important. The Champions League is a big competition.

“Last season, we failed at the semi-finals and this season we wanted to be better.

“We knew in the Premier League we played bad in the last month so we know it was a great opportunity to go to the Champions League but as well it is about trophies.

“The club needs to win a trophy, the players as well.”
