Odds slashed: Liverpool favourites to sign elite striker after reported transfer development
Ladbrokes have slashed the odds of Liverpool signing Antoine Griezmann in the January transfer window.
Manchester United had been the favourites to land the Atletico Madrid forward, but are now in pole position to sign Alexis Sanchez according to the BBC.
Man United are now listed at 20/1, along with Barcelona.
Ladbrokes now make him 7/2 to sign for Liverpool, which puts him in their list of five players most likely to sign for Klopp in January.
Griezmann, who has been linked with multiple clubs this January, is arguably one of the most exciting prospects in world football – and if the Reds can land the 26-year-old they would be a title contender.
The French international has seen his form dip slightly this season, only contributing 11 goals for Atletico Madrid, leading to some speculating about his future in Spain.
Any deal is likely to be a bank breaker. However, with the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona, Klopp has an abundance of pocket money to play with
Reds fans might argue that Liverpool dont need him, following their eye-opening display versus League Leaders Manchester City.
Football Insider verdict:
Liverpool would be transformed into one of the world’s best if they can secure Antoine Griezmann. The deal bringing Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford seems to have stopped speculation surrounding the Frenchman teaming up with Mourinho, so the window of opportunity for Klopp has arrived. Griezmann is unsettled in Spain – so could want to venture elsewhere for a new challenge. The deal seems unlikely, but Liverpool fans can still dream about ‘what if?’ until it’s confirmed that its not happening.
