Manchester United scout David Friio has revealed that David Moyes is interested in signing Arsenal target Antoine Griezmann in the summer.
The Real Sociedad winger has been on the Gunners' radar, while their league rivals Chelsea are also believed to be interested in signing him. Arsene Wenger has already admitted the north London club are keen on signing the 21-year-old at the end of the season.
The French winger has been in impressive form in the La Liga, scoring 15 goals and managing three assists from 24 league appearances. Cristiano Rondalo, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez have a better scoring record than Griezmann in the league this season.
"Griezmann would clearly bring something. His versatility and technique, in a tournament where the gaps are reduced, are real assets. You can't score 15 goals in a great league without having real qualities," United scout Friio told French paper L'Equipe.
Griezmann made his France debut during their 2-0 win over the Netherlands in the international friendly fixture this month. United manager David Moyes was in the attendance watching his summer targets in action. ESPN claims the former Everton boss was scouting the winger and his compatriot Paul Pogba.
The Old Trafford club will face tough competition from Arsenal and Chelsea for Griezmann's signature in the summer. The Metro claims United's arch rivals Liverpool are also believed to be in the race in signing the winger.
Meanwhile, United won their last league fixture comfortably as the Premier League champions registered a 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns. Phil Jones gave a lead for Moyes' side in the first half before Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck extended their lead in the second half.
Rooney claims United deserved the win and the England international believes the victory over West Brom will be a confidence booster for his side's upcoming fixtures.
"It is a confidence-booster. We've got Liverpool and Olympiacos next, where we're two goals behind [after the first leg], followed by West Ham and Manchester City," Rooney told BT Sport.
"They're all big games. It's a good challenge and it's down to us as players to take that challenge on and show everyone we're a good team that means business," United striker concluded.
