Chelsea looking to add quality and depth to their strike force to ease the load on Diego Costa, they are said to be interested in Athletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann.

The striker has scored 20 goals this season attracting the eye of Chelsea and also Spanish giants Barcelona.

Diego Simone, the Athletico boss has spoken about the importance of the Frenchman and this makes the player want to stay with the club.

“When the boss told the press that I’m such an important player, it made me want to stay even more.

“I wasn’t looking for another team or anything, but now I think about it even less.”

However, Diego Simone will not stand in the players way if he does change his mind.

“Of course he’s a very important player for us, but we can’t hold him here with chains.”
