There is a long list of big name stars that Arsenal have bungled signing. Recently it was Kylian Mbappe and most famously it was Zlatan 'I don't do auditions' Ibrahimovic.

Add another name to the nearly men of north London: Antoine Griezmann. In the summer of 2013 Griezmann was coming off a season where he had broken into double figures for goals for the first time for Real Sociedad and clubs were taking note.

Specifically the then 22-year-old was attracting interest from Arsenal, with Griezmann's former agent Eric Olhats in touch with Gunners' scout Gilles Grimandi.
