Barcelona's players have given their approval for the club to sign Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this summer, according to reports in Spain. The Spanish league leaders are lining up an £88million bid for the France striker and are increasingly confident of signing a player who has scored 16 times for Atletico this season. The front page of Tuesday's Sport newspaper has Griezmann mocked up in a Barcelona shirt and they report that their existing stars are happy for him to join. With Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho already in the squad, they say Griezmann, 26, would be their 'Fifth Fantastic'. Sport point out that Barcelona have left the No 7 shirt vacant for Griezmann - the same number he wears for Atletico.
