The La Liga heavyweights are struggling financially and are prioritising a contract to re-sign club legend Lionel Messi, who has become a free agent last season.

According to football.london, the Catalan giants are willing to sell Griezmann – who currently has Β£500,000 a week salary – in this summer’s transfer window and have made contact with the Blues to discover their potential interest in the Frenchman.

Thomas Tuchel is believed to be a fan of the 30-year-old, with the German looking to sign a centre-back, a midfielder and a striker this summer.

Borussia Dortmund’s hotshot Erling Braut Haaland remains the Blues top transfer target, though Tuchel may turn to Griezmann if a deal for the 20-year-old star fails to materialise.

France international forward has also rumoured with a switch to Chelsea’s direct rivals Arsenal in the recent months.
