Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made an attempt this summer for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

The Sun says Wenger swooped for Atletico Madrid superstar Griezmann earlier this summer – who told him he did not want to leave Spain.

Wenger was told by Griezmann at Euro 2016 that he did not want to move to England because his family were settled in the Spanish capital.

An Arsenal source said: “Arsene and Griezmann held talks during the Euros about his situation.

“The player told him outright that he was happy in Spain, and his family were enjoying life there.

“There is still interest. Why wouldn’t there be in one of the best players in the world? But nothing will happen this summer at least.”
