The club from the city of Turin is predicted to make Antoine Griezmann as a transfer target for next season. Under the new coach, Massimiliano Allegri, he wants to completely overhaul his squad.
Last season alone, the club based at the Allianz Arena experienced its worst season after 9 seasons as champions of Serie A. They allegedly want to win the trophy again and win the Scudetto title next season.
The management of the team, which is improving the club’s financial status, is considering a player swap process. Reported by football betting site that Paulo Dybala will be included in the deal between Barcelona and the club itself.
But staying digadang, Barcelona is unlikely to accept the offer. Where they want to reduce the front players. If the 27-year-old striker replaces Antoine Griezmann then it’s the same.
El Barca is considered more interested if young Dutch defender Matthijs De Ligt is included in Antoine Griezmann’s transfer scheme. Where Ronald Koeman’s club is still interested in adding a new name in the defender sector.
The North London club is said to be interested in bringing in a new name in the attacking sector. Their main target at this time, Erling Haaland is considered very difficult to become a Chelsea player this summer. Therefore, the club management agreed to keep looking for another name as an alternative to the young Norwegian striker.
It can happen because of the strikers Chelsea had a bad season last season. Although they can win one of the most prestigious trophies in mainland Europe, the Champions League. After defeating the reigning English Premier League champions, Manchester City.
In addition, the club nicknamed The Blues has lost one striker, Olivier Giroud. The French striker left for AC Milan and got a contract until 2023.
Then also the team management is strongly suspected of selling its young striker, Tammy Abraham, who does not get the trust of Thomas Tuchel. Arsenal are predicted to have cast an interest in the 23-year-old striker. Chelsea itself wants a transfer fund of 40 million Euros for clubs who want to sign him.
Meanwhile, Timo Werner, who was always unsatisfied last season, is predicted not to be a core player. It is believed that the German striker will be given time for Thomas Tuchel to find his best rhythm.

At the club nicknamed The Eagles, the Belgian striker was only relegated 20 times and scored only 2 goals. The position of the main striker was not able to seize. So it is not impossible that the striker will not gain the trust of the coach next season.
