His international teammate Paul Pogba drew the same comparison, posting a selfie on his Instagram story of him being impressed with the caption: “Griezmannkante”. Although the two comments appeared to be tongue in cheek, it could spark the imagination of Potter.
With Kante set to leave the club, the former Brighton boss is in need of a player full of energy and that can be flexible in transition. Chelsea have been heavily linked with Griezmann previously and despite their change of recruitment team, the idea of bringing the Atletico star to Stamford Bridge may still be an active thought.
Griezmann’s contract expires in 2026 and his good form for France will see him valued highly, though he could still be a cheaper alternative to young targets Jude Bellingham and Moises Caicedo.
